We offer strategies to engineering that require our 35- years experience of piling and foundation solutions.

Foundation Piling in SunderlandUnderpinning

When your foundation requires modification, usually due to the original foundation no longer being strong enough for your building it supports, underpinning the foundation is often a viable choice for maintaining your building’s structural stability. If the building undergoes supplemental engineering, or the foundation weakens as a result of outside forces, underpinning it with additional support will save you from pricey repairs later on if something happens with your building’s foundation that causes damage.

Our extensive choice of apparatus is especially suitable for being able to access restricted areas which means we can easily build where many businesses just simply do not have the capability. We include a preliminary survey of the structure as a way to assess the ideal course of action both in construction and design. When you use our in-house designs for underpinning your foundation, you also benefit from our structural repair practical knowledge, should you need it.

As outlined above, we have numerous techniques available to us for constructing bearing piles. Our bearing pile range is considerable enough to fulfil any foundation piling demand.

Bearing Piles

We have several solutions at our fingertips for designing and developing bearing piles in any ground condition that you have. With Foundation Piling, you will find the expertise and experience to give you the most ecological and cost-efficient solution to your foundation requirements, while remaining eco-friendly. Our bearing pile selection incorporates piles including CFA Bored Piles, Top Driven Piles, Mini Piles, and Tripod Bored Piling.

Basement Construction

Whether you need a basement inside of a new build or one integrated into building footprints which are currently there, we are the business with all the equipment and know-how to make it happen. If required, we can construct a basement near a current structure, as we can make use of low vibration piling methods that don’t compromise the structural integrity of the adjacent building while construction is underway.

The range of rigs we have access to is highly suited to setting up basements within the inner city (no matter whether access has limitations or not), and we specialise in building basements applying embedded piled wall structure. These could be combined with our other solutions, such as struts and other stabilising structures or combinations of walls, which we have several styles readily available to choose from. In addition to sound structural support, our pilings make for fantastic retaining walls to keep out unwanted water from entering your basement. In both permanent and short-term situations concerning retaining walls, Foundation Piling has an extensive selection of approaches to utilise in tandem with our piling to address the situation.

Retaining Walls

We have several options and technical innovations at work to provide you with the best retaining walls for your situation. The services we have available for use in constructing retaining walls incorporate contiguous bored pile walls, soil nailing, soil mixing, electroosmosis, and much more.

Slope Stability

Erosion is a natural event for land everywhere, although when slopes deteriorate it can cause serious challenges. If replacing the lost mass isn’t a solution (typically a difficulty when ownership of the land is taken into consideration), another solution needs to be considered. When you come to Foundation Piling with a slope stability concern, we are able to respond with an array of potential solutions, varying from the easy and small-scale soil nailing up to the more large-scale, trusted, and sophisticated totally reinforced bored piling.

Should you have your plan already drafted, we are happy to complete a build-only solution for you. In any other case, we are able to complete both design and supply the construction for the stabilising of the slope. Our stability evaluation will give you the best solution to make sure the targeted slope keeps its stability for the greatest time achievable.

CFA Piling

Contiguous Flight Augur Piling is useful for when piling needs to make it through difficult material such as clay, as well as other non-cohesive materials that bear water).

Rotary Bored Piling

This manner of piling works more effectively than other approaches when pitted against hard, solid rock, additionally, on occasion, boulders. It can also function with much less space needed compared to a CFA rig.

Augur Displacement Piling

When you need a low impact solution to your piling issues, augur displacement piling produces less soil to be removed This could be helpful for both the quality of life around the development area as well as avoid shaking up the foundation of adjoining constructions.

Ground Anchors

When buildings are judged to be in need of repair or replacement, ground anchors can be drilled into the structure to supply an immediate form of relief for the structure.

Mini Piling

When size is an issue for piling rig setup, mini piling is the best option. Whilst considerably smaller than regular configurations, mini piling can still get the job done to satisfaction.

Ductile Iron Tube Piling

This piling method is equally very quick and highly effective. By using a hydraulic hammer enables it to create no spoil whilst generating small vibration, like augur displacement piling.

Screw Piles

Screw piles lack the dependence on concrete or grout that other types have, causing them to great for easy and quick engineering when the time is critical.

Soil Nailing

Soil nailing is usually a solution for when a customer is seeking a small but effective solution which will stand by itself. It is generally of use whenever a slope needs to be reinforced against erosion, generally when a slope is being built on.

Rock Anchors and ODEX

These systems may be used to drill into a solid rock, in addition, to reinforce the rock if required. Much like a heavy-duty soil nailing system, but with a drill to back it up.

Tripod Piling

When piling has to be completed on unstable terrain, a tripod system can be used to offer support in order that piling can still be executed.
