Piling Contractors in Essex

SCD (Steel Cased Driven Piling), is a bottom-driven form of piling that involves the usage of a drop hammer piling rig or vibrating mole. The pile casings and tubes of steel protect them from groundwater damage and leakage. Upon achieving a particular depth, steel is then reinforced into the pile. Our company provides services of SCD piling in Essex, employing the expertise and extensive experience to advise, design, and install piles for a robust foundation for residential and commercial projects. We ensure the timely completion of projects using the most suitable rig for constructing the structures, installing premium quality foundations via our team of specialists.

Our Piling Services

We offer a wide range of services for piling in Essex to accommodate every project’s unique requirement:

Steel Cased Driven Piling provides a sturdy foundation in unstable soils or areas with high water tables.

Sectional Flight Auger Piling is a perfect solution for areas with soft soils such as silt, clay, chalk and sand.

Continuous Flight Auger Piling is suitable for urban constructions due to its low vibrations drilling technique.

Restricted Access Piling is carried out using specialised piling equipment in urban and limited-access areas.

Hollow Stem Piling is utilised in extremely unstable soil conditions that render traditional piling methods unusable.

Mini Piling is employed for narrow areas with low headroom, such as basements, using specialised smaller equipment.

Piled Raft Foundation is the combination of piles and raft to uniformly distribute the loads of a larger structure, increasing the load capacity and controlling settlement.

How Do We Execute Piling Projects?

Being among the most experienced piling companies in Essex, we follow a thoroughly organised piling process to achieve results. Though different piling techniques require different installation methods, the following is a general method that we use to install structural piles:

Site investigation to assess the project’s requirements, load and soil conditions and potential risks to devise a suitable piling strategy.

Designing a perfect pile foundation utilising the collected data to achieve the desired strength and handle the expected load conditions.

Installation of the piles using a suitable, pre-determined piling technique to create a reliable and strong foundation.

Curing and Testing to achieve the desired pile strength and ensure that the foundation is performing at expected levels.

Benefits of Pile Foundations

  • Allow for pre-casting and pre-stressing during site preparation, streamlining the construction process and saving significant time.
  • Offer a flexible foundation option and can be driven to any required depth, depending on the resilience of subsurface soil.
  • Structural piles provide exceptional strength and load-bearing capacity, allowing us to construct to any desired height.
  • Let us create gravity-defying structures by firmly anchoring them against vertical loads, bending moments, storms, and earthquakes.
  • Can be customised to meet certain specifications and dimensions, ensuring they can carry and transmit all building loads to the soil.
  • Can be utilised for underpinning to reinforce the existing foundations when there’s an increase in building loads or a desire to extend the structure vertically.

Applications of Piling

Piling finds its applications on a global scale. Some of them are as follows:

  • Building large and heavy structures on weak soils.
  • Tackling uneven soil settlement due to liquefaction.
  • Constructing in areas with high water table.
  • Anchoring the structure against uplift forces.
  • Uniformly distributing the loads of an asymmetrical building.
  • Providing lateral support against high winds and seismic activities.

The time required for piling depends on the size and the complexity of the project. However, for a house extension, piling can take up to 2-5 days to complete.

Yes, our engineers visit the site to gather the required data for pile design. This includes assessment of soil, wind and load conditions.

Structural piles can be made of:

  • Timber
  • Steel
  • Concrete
  • Composite materials

Yes, piles can be used in combination with the existing foundation system to provide added strength and support to the building.
