Risk Management Limited were contracted to undertake a Phase II, intrusive, Site Investigation at a warehouse unit in Southwark, London. The scope for the investigation required a deep borehole to at least 20m depth to enable foundation and pile design. 

Considering the limited headroom and access difficulties Risk Management Limited utilised a low-headroom ‘cut-down’ cable percussion rig in order to achieve the required depth. The ‘cut-down’ rig is ideal in environments where depths in excess of 10m are required, or tough ground conditions require a cable percussion rig, and headroom is limited.
