 Piletech was then appointed as a nominated subcontractor.

Materials were procured directly from offshore steel mills specifically for the project, saving the client time and cost when compared with a traditional procurement method.

The project involved installation of over 800 screw piles to depths of 15-20 m. Early procurement meant piles were ready to go on day one, with swift installation ensuring that the construction programme was off to a good start.
