Precast concrete piling is generally the lowest cost piling system suitable for most soil conditions and almost all sites, even inner city. Noise and vibration is not a problem as the rigs are specifically designed for residential areas. This system not only costs less than continuous flight auger piling (cfa - the most common type in the UK) but is cleaner, safer, faster, less risky, and does not need an excavator in attendance and there is no spoil to remove.

We can design and construct precast concrete ground beams for houses and flats, typically 400mm sq., fully reinforced in accordance with current codes with spans of up to 6m.

Steel tubular piles are structural steel piles, where the steel is load bearing. Not to be confused with cased concrete piles, where the steel is only a permeant formwork to form a concrete pile. The steel is a re-cycled product from the North Sea oil industry, hence environmentally friendly. They have all the advantages of precast concrete piles over CFA piles, with the added benefit that they can be used to chisel through most obstructions, although this is reflected in their cost.

We offer three types of mini piling. The best choice depends on access, piles loads and the size of the project.

We can design and construct cast in situ ground beams for houses and flats, typically with spans of up to 6m for 450mm wide 450-600mm deep sections, fully reinforced in accordance with the current codes of practice.

We have the resources to drive timber piling for foundations or beach protection.
