SCD Piling

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.

SCD Piling | Our Installation Process

Our experts complete the installation process for SCD piling in the following steps:

  • Drop hammer piling rig (cylindrical-shaped) is used in the casting.
  • Form a plug for sealing the bottom of the tube after placing the tube at the correct location.
  • Strike the bottom shoe, which results in compaction of the ground due to the weight of the tube, which drives the case deeper into the ground.
  • Add tube elements having limited strength.
  • Drive the tubes to a specific depth.
  • Cast the concrete inside tubes.
  • Draw weight for placing steel bar to provide extra reinforcement.
  • Allow the pile to set and strengthen after filling it.
