Clause numbers in parentheses within the heading margins refer to the corresponding clauses in the ICE Specification. Pile layout, design and construction (B1.4) Further to ICE Specification, clause B1.4, Option 2 shall apply unless otherwise specified in Appendix 70/1. Except where shown on the Contract Drawings, the pile type, pile size, and pile positions and spacing shall be selected and determined by the Contractor. The piles shall be designed in accordance with the recommendations of BS EN and the NA to BS EN ; Non-Contradictory Complementary Information (NCCI) in BS 8004; the requirements of Appendix 70/1; and the following: i) the permitted vertical and horizontal pile head deflections for the specified design verification loads shall be in accordance with Schedule 70/A, for the purposes of calculating horizontal deflections, the fixity of the pile heads shall be as shown on the Contract Drawings. In addition, for helical screwed piles: i) design shall be based on conventional soil mechanics, i iv) long-term tension loads in cohesive soils shall be checked using drained soil strength parameters, in the design of radio mast equipment support structures, the wind loading component on a pile shall not exceed 25% of the ultimate tensile resistance of that pile, the basis of the relationship between the pile capacity and measured values of torque shall be demonstrated in the design, Page 2 of 8

3 v) a minimum of two helices shall be provided on every pile, and a minimum of three helices where pile capacity is dependent on the strength of variable soils - such as non-engineered fill and inter-bedded soils, vi) creep of the piles shall be considered in the design. For the purposes of the Tender only, the soil parameters used for the design of the piles shall be those given in the Contract. Where Tenders propose alternative soil parameters for design they shall justify and gain the Engineer s approval prior to adopting these alternatives. The Employer s Representative shall be provided with drawings showing the pile design and the pile arrangement. The number of copies shall be as detailed in Appendix 70/1. A completed Certificate of Design and Checking shall be provided for the pile design in accordance with RT/CE/S/003.

4 v the name of the specialist contractor proposed for the piling work including details of the contractor s relevant experience and successful usage of the proposed piling system for the particular ground conditions at the Site. Safety (B1.6) Forcible corrections to piles (B1.8.2) Piling on or in close proximity to the tracks (B1.10) NR/GN/CPR/401 provides guidance on contractual health and safety requirements In addition to ICE Specification, clause B1.8.2, where the Contractor considers that forcible corrections to steel piles are required, full details of the Contractor s proposals to carry out such corrections shall be submitted to the Employer s Representative, and the Employer s Representative s acceptance of the method and agreement that forcible corrections are necessary shall be obtained before such work commences No excavation shall be permitted in the track formation to provide access for the piling hammer during driving, and accordingly an additional pile length or the use of a long dolly shall be allowed for to give the required penetration. Unless shown otherwise on the Contract Drawings, piles left protruding from the track formation shall not infringe standard clearance as defined in GC/RT5212. Any pile driven within the sleeper area of the track shall be cutoff at a minimum of 300 mm below the underside of sleeper level. Any such pile incompletely driven shall subsequently be driven to the correct depth after making a butt jointed connection that is acceptable to the Employer s Representative. For piles constructed within the ballasted area of the track, on completion of each absolute possession the track and ballast shall be reinstated to provide the track construction standards specified in RT/CE/S/102. Work Package Plan (B1.10) Further to ICE Specification, clause B1.10, a Work Package Plan for the piling works shall be submitted to the Employer s Representative for acceptance. The programme for submitting this Plan shall be as detailed in Appendix 70/2. The Plan shall include further details of the information submitted in accordance with ICE Specification clause B1.10 and the associated guidance in C1.10 and, as necessary, shall include the following: i) calculations, drawings and design and design check certification based on the analysis model, referred to in Clause , for all elements of the piling works including any associated Temporary Works, Page 4 of 8

5 i iv) the piling sequence - to demonstrate that the uplift and lateral displacement of driven piles or the integrity of cast-in-place piles will not be affected, details of the proposed piling plant and equipment - in sufficient detail to demonstrate the suitability of the plant for achieving the required penetration, and for working within the noise and vibration limits specified in the Contract - and the position of such plant relative to the tracks, setting out and means of achieving specified tolerances, v) the length of temporary casing or use of support fluids to maintain adequate support for the ground during pile construction, vi) v periods required for boring and concreting - so that the pile resistance that can be mobilised can be verified, the method and equipment for cleaning or forming the base of the pile where end bearing resistance is assumed to be developed in the design, vi the method proposed to be used by the Contractor to verify pile depth, bore stability, base cleanliness and compliance with the specified tolerances, ix) the method of placing concrete to check (a) that concrete is placed vertically down the bore without segregation, and (b) that a description of the method used to place concrete using a tremie is available where concrete is to be placed under water or support fluid, x) the frequency and means of testing concrete workability, concrete strength (where applicable), and compliance values for grout, xi) x the means of placing reinforcement including lapping of any cages, the method of maintaining concrete cover, cage verticality, and details of any additional reinforcement for lifting, handling and placing, details to show how casings, permanent or temporary, are to be maintained in position during concreting, xi full details of preboring or other methods of aiding pile driveability, and measures taken to minimise disturbance of the ground, Page 5 of 8
