Prospect Place is Bellway Homes’ large and prestigious development of waterfront apartments on the western shore of Cardiff Bay. The development plateau was formed by placement of imported fill onto soft alluvial sediments behind an existing seawall. Intégral Géotechnique was appointed by Walters (UK) Limited, the earthworks contractor for the land reclamation phase of the project, to advise on materials quality and placement issues.
For Bellway Homes, the developer, Intégral also carried out deep rotary coring of the Mercia Mudstone which was encountered beneath some 20m of soft cohesive soils, to provide information for design of the large diameter bored piles that were to support the new buildings.
