GPU32 3500 tons .From the beginning,Grand Steel Piling started to  designe the  retaining wall .The remedy consisted of an 18 metre sheet pile retaining wall driven using a pileleader and supported by universal beam struts that raked up off existing pilecap structures. Due to the collapse, the soil/Sand  contained large quantities of construction debris, including concrete blocks and remnant anchor cables from the failed wall. The  sheet piles were required to punch through all obstacles in order to reach penetration depth. Using a high frequency hydraulic vibro hammer together with a unique hardened knife edge attached to the reinforced pile tip, the  pile penetrated every kind of debris to achieve the required depth, with no declutching experienced. All sheet piles were fabricated on site using I Beam beds. Construction of the basement pile caps and subsequent structure was then able to proceed unhindered.
