Hoe C. Yeow, Richard E. Prust, Adam Pickles, Duncan Nicholson

Moorehouse is founded on what at the time of construction were the deepest base grouted bored piles ever installed in London, specifically designed to accommodate settlement from the proposed development of Crossrail. This paper describes design and construction issues associated with this project with special emphasis on the construction aspects of installing these piles in a heavily congested site in Central London.
