Listy

That curious wall looks like a Pile guide wall. They will drillout the foam with the piling rig auger and use the concrete to guide the pile. The wall will end up looking like the one on to SAHMRI 1 at the top of the photo.
The whole area will then probably get excavated down as the piles being that close together will form a retaining wall.

Looks like alot of digging still to do

Close, but no cigar!
The guide wall polystyrene will be removed prior to drilling

Nice photo.

Does anyone know how long the screw on those rigs last? Can they be refurbished or do they become scrap once they have worn out? Where are they made? Are they a single piece top to bottom or are there several bits screwed together with a cutting point on the bottom?

No idea about the longevity, but the auger/screw is made of several bits each about 5m long joined together. The center core is hollow & is currently hooked up to a cement mixer via a very long hose, so as the screw is being withdrawn from the hole its just made, it's being filled with concrete at the same time. They appear to be drilling out ~5m columns at the moment along the polystyrene trench.
