Tensar designed working platforms incorporating TriAx were key to the success of foundation works alongside a railway viaduct at Bermondsey Dive Under in South East London.

Client's Challenge:
Main contractor Skanska required a temporary working platform to support piling equipment capable of passing Network Rail’s rigorous approvals process and enabling construction of foundations for a major new rail junction in Bermondsey. 

Tensar Solution:
The working platform comprised layers of site-won granular fill, mechanically stabilised with TriAx® geogrids. The efficient load spread design, validated by Tensar’s 35 years’ experience and extensive full-scale performance testing, shortened the piling platform construction programme, reduced costs and lowered the project’s carbon footprint, compared with conventional working platforms.
