Joyce's Supermarket, Galway - June'05

A supermarket extension in Knocknacarra, Galway required piling. The piles had to be driven in a confined area close to the existing structure. The pile lengths were relatively short as the rock was shallow. Our DCI pile was chosen as with our compact rig we were able to pile this restricted site.
