  • 3 No. Twin Track Cantilevers Foundations

Concrete auger piles

Construction Phase

Working in and around Euston station obviously has its challenges and as such Readypower embedded an engineer in the project team to ensure the planning from both sides interfaced seamlessly. Plant and equipment required was supplied via Readypower Rail Services and was best in class – very much needed when working with ALO, under existing OLE and a critical path requiring 100% reliability.

“Readypower have delivered safely and professionally for a variety of OLE structure foundations with various access issues throughout Euston. Their staff were always present when required for various meetings whether planning construction or in DCIs as well as always being available on call. A successful project fully completed to plan.”
