Our Efficient Process of CFA Piling

The process of CFA piling utilises a cutting-edge technique. This technique combines the process of driven piles and bored piles to deliver an efficient process. We follow the process below for the construction of CFA piles.

Step 1: Get in touch with our experienced groundwork contractors to discuss your project in detail and finalise your requirements.

Step 2: Our advanced augers will arrive at your location on the scheduled date. Our specialists will start the preparation of ground for mini piling foundations and will select the places for drilling.

Step 3: Once the ground is ready after the necessary preparations, drilling into the ground will start with a continuous flight auger.

Step 4: After reaching the required depth, the auger will be removed, and our contractors will start pumping concrete through the hollow shaft of the auger pipe. It will fill the void and create a CFA pile that is both strong and reliable.

Step 5: Our skilled engineers will utilise advanced equipment to ensure the pile strength and capacity, after it is constructed with precision and left to cure for appropriate time.
