Description

The ICE Specification for Piling and Embedded Retaining Walls (SPERWall) is the UK’s pre-eminent technical specification for piling and embedded walling works, either on land or near to shore.

The existence of an agreed way of executing piling works helps to reduce disputes on site and enables consultants to design more economically by having confidence in how the site works will be carried out. This edition has been updated to reflect the latest piling techniques and procurement methods used in the geotechnical sector, as well as revisions to the Eurocodes, British Standards and CIRIA guides.

This document has been designed for use with common practices, but is not intended to inhibit innovation. Novel solutions can be used with this specification provided that additional clauses are included in the project specification which will ensure that the final product is constructed in accordance with the design requirements.

ICE Specification for Piling and Embedded Retaining Walls:

  • includes new sections on micropiling and helical piling as well as guidance on the use of polymer fluids for excavation support
  • ensures tolerances are better understood for the various techniques
  • provides further guidance on concrete specification and testing

This edition retains the three-part approach of the second edition. Part A is an introduction to the essential concepts necessary to procure a piling or retaining wall contract. Part B is the specification and is still the only part of this document intended for incorporation in contracts. Part C provides guidance for use of the specification and essential background information for specifiers and contractors alike.

This specification has been one of the most popular of ICE’s standard specifications and has been fundamental in raising piling standards in the UK, as well as where it has been applied around the world.
