Ports Harbours and Bridge Foundations

Marine civil projects can often involve a variety of marine foundation challenges. At LDD, our team are experienced in providing world-class bespoke foundation solutions and installation, all under a single contract, to reduce Client risk and remove multiple supplier interfaces.

Our clients have expressly emphasised their need for single contract foundation packages, and we have listened. Calling on our Acteon sister companies’ services and equipment, in one single foundation contract, we can provide a comprehensive pile installation package.

Our expert personnel have years of experience in near-shore civils projects as well as offshore and subsea construction projects. In this respect our teams are perfectly placed to take on large scale marine construction foundation projects, utilising their project management skills and well-practiced site expertise.

Our pile top drilling rigs are capable of drilling 0.5m to 8.0m diameter sockets and our sister company, MENCK, have a range of hydraulic hammers to compliment this drilling fleet. Our in-house engineering expertise means that we can tackle the installation of all pile sizes according to your project design.

With our Under-Reaming capability, we can install large monopiles as well as clusters of smaller piles without the requirement for foundation grouting, resulting in cost effective pile installation solutions.

Where grouting is necessary, we have extensive experience using either conventional or HPC grout. We have installed ribbed grout sockets for additional cohesion and used geotextile membranes to prevent excessive grout loss in large sub-seabed voids.

We can also provide a range of lifting and handling calling on our engineering business for the design and fabrication of our cutting-edge equipment range or customised equipment.
