Building pits


Building pits are temporary waterproof constructions in which an excavation is executed for the realization of an underground building structure. When enough space is available a pit can be dug under natural slope when enough space is available to do so.

However, usually, this extra space is not available as roads, railways, or other buildings will be situated along the edges of the excavation. In that case sheet piles can be applied as an earth-retaining structure. The function of this construction is not only to retain ground, but it also has a waterproof function.

In combination with the delivery of sheet piles Projects provides a total solution to ensure the total stability of the building pit. Our stock tubes and beams are ideally suited to be used as struts and walings. As the products are not permanently applied in the final construction ArcelorMittal proposes commercial possibilities tailor-made for temporary use of material.
