Target was asked to provide a design for a Heli Pile mast base for a 22 metre artificial tree that would carry equipment for O2 Airwave so our in-house Engineers designed a modular base that could be easily transported and assembled on site without the need for heavy plant or equipment.
The Heli Pile® lengths, mast base frame and all the required installation tools and equipment arrived in a van and the Heli Pile points were installed to a depth of 2.5 metres and proof tested in situ on site to loads in excess of 70kN in tension at each pile point.
With no "wet mix" on site the base was ready for the mast in the afternoon. After just 8 hours from arriving on site the mast was erected on its new Heli Pile foundation. The project managers were so impressed with the speed of the installation and the lack of disruption they asked Target to design the foundations for the cabinet as well. Target continues to provide bespoke foundation solutions for masts and columns across Europe.
