A new aggregates processing plant is being built at Brett Group’s Newhaven East Quay site for ships to unload raw construction material for onward transport by road or rail through the recently redeveloped Newhaven Marine Sidings.
Piling estimator Chris Glenn said: “The ground conditions at Newhaven Port consist of clayey fine sand and soft chalk, which means we have to drive piles down to depths in the region of 37 metres to obtain the required loads. We plan to utilise a crane to install the steel tubular piles for the hopper crane due to site constraints and poor ground conditions.”
Aarsleff managing director Kevin Hague said: “It is great to be working at Newhaven Port with Brett Group on their new aggregates processing plant. We have a good working relationship with Brett from previous projects, and I hope that it’ll only continue to strengthen.”
