Carnwath Road shaft – base slab pour

Five weeks after completing Kirtling Street shaft base slab pour, the Camfaud Special Projects team was back at the bottom of a 50 metre deep shaft, this time at Carnwath Road, repeating the exercise. Our customer at Carnwath Road was BMB jv; BAM Nuttall, Morgan Sindall and Balfour Beatty, and the concrete was supplied by Hanson Concrete.

The Carnwath Road shaft is narrower than that at Kirtling Street and so there was slightly less concrete in the slab. However, in terms of resources needed to carry out the pour safely and successfully, it was very similar.

Camfaud supplied three concrete pumps, one placing boom, high pressure delivery pipeline and ancillary equipment. As with Kirtling Street, we provided two shifts of Thames Tideway inducted, CPCS qualified operators working round the clock over a full weekend to complete the pour.

The biggest concrete pour on the Thames Tideway project

Thames Tideway has just published it’s August 2018 video update. It includes, at around the 3 mins 25 second mark, time-lapse footage of the Kirtling Street shaft base slab pour.

The pour, the biggest on the whole Tideway project, was carried out by Camfaud for the Tideway Central contractor Flo jv, a joint venture between Ferrovial and Laing O’Rourke. The concrete was supplied by London Concrete from their nearby Battersea plant.

Camfaud supplied three high pressure concrete pumps, three placing booms, pipeline and ancillary equipment to place approximately 3,350 cubic metres of concrete at the bottom of the 50 metre deep shaft. Two shifts of Camfaud operators worked round the clock for 60 hours to complete this concrete pumping marathon.

This pour follows on from the work that we did a few years ago on the Lee Tunnel project that was highlighted recently in the first episode of the BBC2 tv documentary The Five Billion Pound Super Sewer.

The Five Billion Pound Super Sewer

Working on the new Thames Tideway "Super Sewer"

Working on the new Thames Tideway “Super Sewer”

Be sure to watch the new BBC2 documentary, The Five Billion Pound Super Sewer. It is a fascinating, three part documentary about the building of the Thames Tideway cross London sewer.

The first episode starts with an overview of the project and explains the necessity for the scheme.

It then concentrates on the construction of the now completed, first phase of the scheme, the Lee Tunnel. This links Abbey Mills Pumping Station to the Beckton Sewage Treatment Works and is the conduit through which all of the discharge from the Thames Tideway will flow.

Finally, the episode looks at the early stages of the Thames Tideway build, concentrating on a diving team working in the fast flowing river Thames.

As with the previous BBC documentary, The Fifteen Billion Pound Railway, about the construction of Crossrail, a fun parlour game can be played spotting the Camfaud concrete pumps. You won’t score many points for noticing the pump in the end credits but kudos will be gained from spotting the static pump used for the secondary lining in the Lee Tunnel!
