Temporary Works Design
Prior to piling works commencing, IKM prepared for the client a site-specific vibration model, which calculated and predicted ground vibration levels to be experienced approximately 2 to 12m from the pipeline margins. This enabled thresholds to be set for ground vibration levels during piling, in compliance with BS 5228-4 (1992) and BS 5228-2 (2009). During piling IKM were able to relay real-time vibration data to the client, ensuring the integrity of the pipeline with each phase of construction. Throughout the project, IKM held regular onsite and offsite discussions with BP personnel in order to adapt the monitoring methodology to changing site conditions.
