Piling involves the essential task of embedding structural piles deep into the ground to serve as the fundamental support for buildings. This process becomes necessary in areas where soil conditions are less than ideal, ensuring the load of a structure is evenly distributed and the ground is stabilised. The advancement in piling technology has enabled architects and engineers to push boundaries, creating grand structures worldwide.

Our Piling Services; Based on Soil Condition

Bored Piling

Alpha Piling LTD specialises in drilling boreholes and filling them with steel cages and concrete to create piles, ideal for larger structures requiring greater depth.

Driven Piling

Our certified engineers employ vibrating probes and hydraulic hammers to drive piles into soft soil efficiently, offering ease of installation and reliable performance.

Screw Piling

Our experts provide rapid installation of screw piles with helical blades that screw into the soil, suitable for lighter structures and ensuring quick setup.

Sheet Piling

We drive thin, interlocking steel sheets into the ground, specialising in constructing retaining walls, cofferdams, and temporary structures.

Mini Piling

We excel in drilling small-diameter piles into limited-access sites commonly used for underpinning existing foundations.


When to Use Piling for Construction Endevaours

Piling plays a crucial role in construction by providing stability and safety of structures. They are particularly indispensable in various scenarios:

  • In situations where alternative foundation types are prohibitively expensive or technically impractical, piling foundations offer a viable solution.
  • In areas with high groundwater table, piling prevents water from compromising the stability of the structure.
  • In areas where soil excavation to adequate depths is challenging due to poor soil quality, it provides a stable alternative.
  • Piling foundations are ideal for stabilising structures on soft or compressible soil near the surface.
  • When conventional methods fail to keep foundation trenches dry, piling offers a reliable solution to maintain structural stability.
  • They are crucial near riverbeds, shorelines, canals, or deep drainage systems where scouring can undermine traditional foundations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Different types of piles vary in their installation depths based on factors like soil consistency, vertical load requirements, and construction limitations:

Mini piles: Generally installed up to 50 meters deep.

Screw piles: Installed in sections up to 6 meters deep.

Bored piles: Depths can exceed 60 meters, with diameters up to 2.4 meters.

Tube piles: Concrete piles reaching up to 30 meters.

Piling materials vary by type but commonly include concrete, steel, and timber. These materials are chosen based on the specific requirements of the piling method and the characteristics of the soil and load-bearing capacity needed for the construction project.

Tests conducted on piles can encompass static load tests, dynamic load tests, or pile integrity tests. Model tests are employed to simulate how foundations interact with structures under varying loading and environmental conditions.

Piling costs vary based on job size, number and type of piles needed, and depth of installation. Additional factors include soil type, structural demands, and site-specific preparation
