The final piling ‘visit’ to the Shrubhill site, which stretches from Leith Walk to Dryden St is going ahead. Piling equipment will mobilise to site on Monday 12 March. The duration of the piling should be no more than 3 weeks.

  • The first week’s work will be taking place alongside the railway track beside the old chimney.
  • The middle week will be the works to the two buildings nearest the old gable walls on the boundary.
  • The final week back into the middle of the site.

Allenbuild will position vibration-monitoring equipment along the old gables and at the rail bridge and chimney.

No piling will commence before 08:00 am. Piling will cease by 18:30. It is likely that piling will also occur on Saturday 17 March and Saturday 24 March, from 08:00 to 14:30 at the latest.
