I only have experience with poured in place caissons , and four inch tolerance 
 is the norm, which means you will have to spec a wall that is fourteen 
inches thick, HTH



I'm really trying to get a feel for what's reasonable. I swear, if you search 
 online for "sheet pile tolerance" you find precious little. Even specs for 
 sheet pile published by, e.g., state DOTs and FHWA, say very little about 

It's a conspiracy, I tell ya!

Anyway. I'm comfortable with +/- 3 inches for the horizontal placement of 
the sheet pile as suggested by the British Standard. I'm also comfortable 
with +/= 1% slope. I'm even comfortable with the notion suggested by the 
British Standard (BS - you reckon they heard that joke a time or two?) that 
 the tolerances can be ADDITIVE - which is kinda unusual judging from other
