Centrum Pile supplied Buckingham Group the 925 No. 250mm square precast concrete piles, with pile lengths varying from 9 to 14m. The piles provided the foundations for the Retail, Leisure and East Stand buildings. Owing to the offsite benefits of precast piling in relation to low carbon footprint, factory quality piles and no spoil away during installation, the Foundations Estimator for the project, Euan Allison, commented:
“Quite simply, we are putting less material in the ground, to achieve the same end”.
