The Dumont, Albert Embankment, London

Dam Structures were commissioned to detail, supply, fabricate and install two levels of temporary propping to support the secant piled wall during the 3 tier basement excavation at The Dumont residential development in the centre of London.

The installation could not be carried out by the site tower crane as approximately 50% of the work area was located under a concrete logistics slab. In these areas the props were placed on machine skates and voids were cut in the logistics slab to allow a chain block access to draw the prop into position.

Once excavation is completed the propping will be removed and recycled as part of DAM Structures buy back option for clients.
