SERVICE & OFFERINGS
The mini piles are most suitable for residential, commercial and industrial structures with light to medium loads and are ideally suited to areas with restricted access.
These piles can be installed with light hand held drilling rigs which are ideally suited for sites with difficult or confined access, or with a tractor mounted drilling rig on normal building platforms.
The diameter of the piles varies from 175 to 300mm and depending on ground conditions, can be designed to support loads in the range 100 to 400kN/pile.
For difficult or saturated ground conditions not suitable for open hole piles, permanent casings can be driven to prevent the ingress of water into the pile shafts.
The following underpinning systems are used to support the foundations of structures where settlement damage has occurred;
Jacked piles, are typically installed for structures occurring on deep seated compressible soils.
Where competent soils occur at depth less than 1m below the foundations, we install shallow pads and/or mass concrete, to support the foundations.
For very lightly loaded structures, we use mini auger piles and cantilever corbels.
