A driven pile is a relatively long, slender column, provided to offer support or to resist forces, made of preformed material having a predetermined shape and size that can be physically inspected prior to and during installation, which is installed by impact hammering, vibrating, or pushing into the earth. Driven piles can be cut, capped and used without delay and without a source of concrete.
A driven pile is a total engineered solution – the design installation, and quality assurance that are part of each driven pile combine to eliminate guess work and produce a known, reliable and cost effective product that can accommodate a wide variety of subsurface conditions.
Ideal for almost any application, helical piles can be quickly installed with little impact on immediate surroundings. Upgrades to live facilities can be made safely and in a timely manner. As with driven piles, helical piles can be cut, capped, and used without delay, and without a nearby source of concrete. If the time comes, helical piles can be easily removed for re-use or recycling, assisting customers with addressing environmental concerns, and drastically reducing remediation costs.
BORED PILING (DRILLED SHAFT)
Bored piling is a method that involves boring a circular hole into the ground, installing steel reinforcement and filling the bore hole with concrete to form a pile. Boring is carried out to the required depth by means of a purpose-built hydraulic drilling machine. We`re proud to offer Soilmec drilling rigs for our Bored piling
We have extensive experience in drilled, cast-in-place piling and can handle any project size. Our large and technologically advanced equipment provide straight shaft piles, belled piles, and caissons. High capacities can be achieved with single piles through the use of belling, which expands the base of the pile up to 3 times the diameter of the shaft.
CFA piles are also commonly known as auger-cast piles or auger-cast-in-place piles. They are constructed by drilling a slender hole into the ground utilizing a hollow stem auger, then pressure pumping grout or concrete through the hollow stem of the auger as it is slowly being retracted. If required, a reinforcing cage or centre bar can be installed immediately after the auger is fully withdrawn.
