Having completed a successful trial over the first half of 2021, where 500mm diameter vibro stone columns were installed in a test zone and load tests carried out, Van Elle’s ground improvement team have now commenced the main works at West Ruislip Portal for the SCS joint venture on the southern section of HS2.

The project will involve over 5,200 stone columns being installed, using two of the Group’s low emission vibro stone column rigs.

These works mark the beginning of the 150th project for the ground improvement team, which launched two years ago to deliver vibro stone columns and rigid inclusion techniques for clients across the UK.

From works on petrochemical and landfill sites, highways, warehouses and numerous housing sector schemes, the team have quickly built a strong reputation within the industry.
