Tracey Concrete Ltd manufacture a range of Caisson Chambers sizes which can be used to provide economic and rapidly constructed shafts. Our Caisson Chamber sinking system was originally designed for micro-tunnelling, but is more widely used in the construction of pumping stations, wet wells, & manholes, particularly in difficult ground conditions.
The advantages of using a Caisson Chamber system include:
- Fast, clean & accurate construction
- It is inherently safer
- Immediate permanent shafts
- Fewer joints that segmented systems
- Minimal labour costs
- Can construct shafts without having to dewater
- Quicker construction times
