The Advantages of Using Piled Foundations
Protection From Ground Movement
Our piled foundations can be designed with a void to the underside, effectively suspending them from the ground, negating the pressure exerted by expanding clay.
Stable Alternative to Deep Trenches
The hazards caused by deep excavations can be prevented using piles to support your foundation by penetrating the ground in carefully selected, predefined locations.
Less Waste Than Other Methods
Piling can reduce the cost of muck away and limit the removal of spoil from site. This is especially useful on sites with restricted access and produces a smaller carbon footprint.

HOW IT WORKS
The Piling Process
1. Get in touch with a member of our team to discuss your project. We will go over any plans or designs that you have and can arrange a meeting to survey the site and discuss your requirements in more detail if requested.
After carefully evaluating your project requirements we will supply a quote based on the most cost effective means and safest methods to carry out the piling works. If requested we can also supply an estimate for the full foundation design & installation so that you can build off what we provide.
2. Once we have received an order for the works we will arrange with you a date to begin installing the piled foundation. We generally require just five days notice before commencement.
When piling begins our team of experienced operators will ensure that all work is carried out safely and efficiently. We regularly service domestic projects and believe that every care should be taken to ensure disturbances to homeowners and surrounding structures is kept to the bare minimum.
3. If you have opted for us to install the full foundation we will arrange to meet your local building control so that they can check the foundation prior to completion. Once the local authority is satisfied we will pour the concrete and finish at a level suitable for your brickwork to be laid.
Our team will then begin clean up to ensure a clear work-space is ready for you to commence building works once the concrete has dried. If you have any more questions about the piling process please do not hesitate to contact us.
Good construction starts from the ground up and it's important to ensure that care is taken at every step of the process.
We understand the importance of quality construction work and for over 10 years have helped our clients ensure their piling projects get off the ground safely, efficiently, and on time.
