Piling is one of the most trusted and popular processes used to build deep foundations by installing piles into the ground using different techniques. With a stable and strong foundation, you can construct any complicated and heightened structure. However, the process requires precision, attention to detail, and specialised skills.

Our Eminent Piling Services in Oxford

  • CFA piling: One of the most popular piling techniques, highly suitable for residential and commercial projects where low to mid-range loading (depth of up to 25mm) is required.
  • Open bored piling: Using a rotating auger, a bore is created in the ground, followed by pile installation. It is a cost-effective method sparing the hassle of extensive excavations.
  • Mini piling: It uses piles with a shorter diameter ranging from 100-400mm, making them ideal for constricted work spaces where minimum noise and disruptions are a necessity.
  • Contiguous retaining walls: These walls can be installed in challenging soil conditions. The piles are installed closely, giving them a wall-like structure, increasing the load-bearing capacity of the foundation, and protecting the structure from lateral earth pressure.
  • Secant retaining walls: Secant walls involve intersecting reinforced concrete piles, enabling slope stabilisation. They work fine in different soil conditions and cause less vibrations and disruption.

Our Staggering Work Process

Consultation: Connect with the experts and book an appointment to discuss the project requirements in detail and get a quote.

On-site inspection: Our specialists and engineers will visit the construction site for geotechnical analysis, vicinity inspection, soil’s load-bearing capacity, and an overview of other aspects.

Designing: Post inspection, the architects meticulously design a piling foundation and specify pile design, size, and installation techniques.

Execution: Following the design, the installation process is seamlessly executed and completed using our state-of-the-art equipment.

Post-work analysis: Once the foundation is set and cured, certain tests, i.e. Static Pile Load Testing and Pile Dynamic Analysis, are done to ensure the required strength and stability is achieved.

Documentations: You are given the following documents to ensure transparency and legal compliance of the project:

  • As-built records
  • Copy of all concrete tickets
  • Certificates for concrete cube tests
  • Certificates of integrity tests
  • Certificate for static load-bearing tests.

Frequently Asked Questions

From home extensions, underpinnings, retaining walls, basements, and bridges to multi-storey commercial buildings, pilings can be used in any residential or commercial project where a deep foundation is a compulsion.

The pile penetration depends on the project’s requirements. However, we can dig the piles of diameter 750mm up to 25.5m into the ground using our state-of-the-art equipment.

Our team is available from Monday-Friday 7:00 am to 6:00 pm.

The spacing depends on the nature of the ground, project demands, and other specifications, but ideally, the optimum spacing between the piles should be 3 times their diameter.
