Sheet Piling

Anyone who knows anything about sheet piling will tell you it takes skill, patience and years of practice to master the art of sheet pile installation.

Cooks Marine Services have over 40 years of working across British canals and waterways. Our piling crews are supervised by highly skilled personnel with many years of practice under their belt. Cooks undergo extensive in-house training to ensure that staff are highly competent before being able to undertake sheet piling.

Having worked on the Thames in particular for over 40 years has provided us with a wealth of in-house knowledge of river conditions, and most importantly the typical bed formations that are present in certain locations. 

Cooks Marine Services own a fleet of specialist piling equipment, ranging from small cranes with EMV’s for carefully installing trench sheets, which are typically weaker than sheet piles. We then increase gradually in size of crane and piling attachments up to our 65 ton crane for installing much larger and longer tubular or sheet piles. 

Cooks Marine Services have a multitude of different piling attachments available to hire as part of your marine civil engineering project, from EMV Vibros (vibratory piling attachment) to drop hammers (sometimes called impact hammers).

Our piling equipment comes available to hire along with a highly trained and experienced operating team, who can operate tugs, operate cranes and importantly provide the experience required for undertaking the piling works on your project. 

Cooks Marine Services civil engineers can create temporary coffer dams, drive steel sheet piles and tubular piles for creating fender piles, wet docks, boat houses, river bank stabilisation, riverside developments and much more. Cooks Marine Services are happy to take enquiries for Labour and Plant for piling works. Cooks Marine Services have the specialist marine plant available for your project.

We have installed all manner of piles along the Thames and have built up a wealth of knowledge and experience along the way. Please contact us if you have any piling installation required on your project.
