Introduction

In October 2023, MGF supported Aarsleff Ground Engineering on a project in Forest Town, Mansfield. The project was to upgrade the wastewater facilities in the village and Aarsleff Ground Engineering’s role was to install a temporary sheet piled cofferdam to allow excavations to take place.

The collaboration between MGF and Aarsleff has been ongoing for many years. The combination of MGF’s innovative product design and Aarsleff’s operational expertise means that value-added solutions can be offered to help save on time, cost, and associated emissions.


“We, together with MGF, have a shared vision of innovation and sustainability, which we strive to implement from the outset. In turn, this enables us to provide pioneering and cost-effective solutions. The collaboration between everyone involved with the project ran smoothly and we are pleased to have offered a value- added solution to our clients once again”

Project Manager, Zohaib Khan.

The Solution

In total, MGF provided 246 sheet piles over a total programme of two weeks. and 5 200 series cross struts to support installation of a full 254UC tank brace system. Due to tough ground conditions, Aarsleff quickly addressed the issue by pre-auguring to loosen the material to minimise delays.

The solution installed was a cofferdam, which is a structure built to allow an enclosed area to be excavated and remain free from water.

This excavation creates a dry working environment for the major work to proceed. At Mansfield, this will be the installation of attenuation tanks.

MGF also supplied 5 200 series cross struts to support installation of a full 254UC tank brace system. Temporary hydraulic frames and struts are seen as being a viable reusable alternative to using walers and cross braces and are also quicker to install.


The Verdict

As the MGF system is a reusable fleet hire option, the system provided sustainability advantages to Aarsleff’s client when compared with traditional welded waler systems.

The fully modular system also resulted in a speedier installation compared to if a welded frame solution had been used. MGF were proud to support another successful project and look forward to the continued relationship with Aarsleff.
