Arrange the sheet piles in sections to check if the piles will interlock correctly or not.
Hammer the first sheet pile to the defined depth as per the design.
Use vibratory hammers for installation, but use impact hammers if the soil is hard or dense.
Use hydraulics to push the sheet piles into place if vibrations are prohibited at that particular site.
After the first sheet pile is placed, drive the second sheet pile so that it interlocks with the first one.
Repeat the process until the wall is completed.
Use connector elements to maintain the integrity of the wall if it requires complex shapes.
