What is Piling?
Piling is a technique used to set a deep foundation for buildings. By driving and embedding piles of concrete or steel into the deep soil of the ground, we are able to provide a strong support to the building structure at the foundation .Factors such as the size, capacity & scope of the project, the condition of the soil immediately beneath the ground, and space required for rigging, all need to be taken into consideration before beginning the piling process. As opposed to a shallow foundation, a deep foundation is used to transfer the load of the structure to the deeper, stronger layer of the soil which has a high bearing capacity and can take the load, thus supporting the structure well.
If you are unsure of your soil or ground conditions, we can mobilize and drive two test piles that would give you a better idea of the bed rock on the site is. Please call for a free quotation.
This is necessary for confined areas before contracts are started where there is doubt about potential vibration or structural damage to existing or surrounding properties.
