In preparation for the Thames Tideway Tunnel, Thames Tideway selected Barhale to carry out a number of horizontal and vertical cores on the existing Thames River Wall Structure at various locations throughout London. The cores were then sent for laboratory testing to assess the condition and structural capacity of the river wall.

The work sites were spread over 8 different locations along the river Thames, spanning from, Wandsworth in the west, to Shadwell in the east. A total of 20 vertical cores, and 44 horizontal cores were completed as part of the works. The Barhale team employed their experience in tidal working environments, as well as in multi- stakeholder management, to facilitate the safe, efficient and responsible delivery of the works required on the Thames River Wall Coring Scheme.
