KING POST WALLS

King post walls are a quick, cost effective system of building temporary or permanent earth retaining walls. They are formed using steel beams and either precast concrete or in-situ panels.

The post holes are bored in the ground using a continuous flight auger (CFA) piling rig, positioned at pre-determined centres. The holes are subsequently filled with concrete, and the H beam is installed. This allows concrete panels to be inserted between the webs of the H sections, when excavation commences.

BENIFITS:

  • Simple, fast and versatile solution
  • Cheaper alternative to sheet piling
  • Virtually silent and vibrationless
  • Speed of installation
  • Ready for immediate follow-on construction

PRE-CAST AND HYBRID CONSTRUCTION

Hybrid concrete construction is a method of construction which integrates precast concrete and cast in-situ concrete to make best advantage of their different inherent qualities. The accuracy, speed and high-quality finish of precast components can be combined with the economy and flexibility of cast in-situ concrete.

This technique produces buildable and more importantly competitive structures, therefore the client receiving the overall benefits of safe and faster construction with a consistent performance.

Cidon Construction have many established partnerships with various precast suppliers and have undertaken a number of hybrid schemes on a full design and build basis over the years.

Our niche expertise, reputation for delivery and strong balance sheet are key attributes to our success.

ETHICAL RECRUITMENT AND TRAINING

We are committed to inspiring our people to grow, and encouraging them with training and development to become the best they can be. We strive to keep them safe and offer a great place to work, whilst ensuring all staff are mindful of their important role in the business. In order to grow and develop in this fast-paced industry, we recognise the need to attract and retain high calibre, motivated trainees and graduates.

Some of our strongest and most ambitious team members initially started with Cidon in this capacity. As such, Cidon have partnered with training providers, to deliver accredited apprenticeships in Civil Engineering, Formwork Joinery, Steel Fixing and Business Administration.

Some of these avenues for recruitment include targeting the local colleges offering apprenticeships, reaching out to former professional rugby players who have needed to take an early retirement and others who were hungry to succeed in a career in the construction industry.  We also have a passion to get Ex-Offenders back in to work, and integrate them in to society.   

We established a bespoke formwork joinery apprenticeship programme some 6 years ago, some of the aforementioned successfully completing this training route, others we worked with them to establish the most suitable role for their capability and skillset.
