Piling is a method that builders use widely to lay a deep foundation for structures such as homes. Through pushing and embedding piles of timber, concrete and steel into the ground’s deep soil, the piling contractors are able to provide strong support to the foundation-level building structure-a pre-requirement for any construction project.

The two main ways of installing piles are pushing where the pile displaces the soil rather than first scraping it, and tedious where you make a hole to poured into cement or grout. The biggest advantage of piling, which makes it perfect in everything from underpinning to bridge-building, is that piles can pass on to softer ground, shifting the load to more stable soil and bedrock. A pile foundation is a concept of civil engineering which is, at its most basic, a pile-supported substructure.

That form of foundation allows a surface or layers of soil to support some type of structure. The dirt was actually built up under the surface of the ground, and the further it goes, the more solid the foundation should be.

A pile foundation has two basic parts: the heap and the pile top. The cap of the pile is the foundation of the design. This is similar to a spread foot in that it can support a slab, a wall, or a pillar of a building. It’s special, however, because it places all the weight on a stack or a set of stacks. Factors such as the project’s size capability and scope the state of the soil directly below the surface, and the space required for rigging, all need to be weighed before the piling process begins.

What should you know about Contiguous Piling London

Piling London

Used by piling contractors across London, piling is a method of creating foundations for structures, suitable for almost any type of ground. With many piling companies in London using this method, it is a preferred choice when it comes to sandy or unstable ground. Piling contractors create steel reinforced solid concrete columns, allowing piling companies across London to guarantee structurally sound results.

Piling companies in London will space piles based on engineer specifications, or in a line to form a barrier for structural support. Most often, a concrete beam is formed along the top of the piles, as is done by piling contractors all over London, called a ‘capping beam’, delivering additional structural integrity.

Piling companies in London follow the rule that piles are required at no more than 3 metre intervals, as well as being on most structural junctions.

Mini Piling London

As mini piling contractors in London demonstrate, direct piling includes drilling rigs that are suited to working within domestic properties, often with tight space and headroom. As one of the experienced piling companies in London, our limited piling rigs can enter standard doors and access smaller spaces.

Mini piling is an ideal solution for foundation problems where mini piling works include:

  • Limited access locations for piling contractors  where soil excavation and removal would be difficult/expensive.
  • Built up areas where noise and vibration are to be considered for piling companies in London
  • Limited headroom location buildings, where alterations to existing structures are necessary.
  • Areas where localised soil conditions are particularly poor.

Driven Pile, Cast-in-situ Pile

Pilling helps aggregate the soil around the pile sides and contributes to soil densification. Sometimes named the piles that cement the surrounding soil as      a compaction heap. The compaction of the soil capacity increases to bear. To cement the soil, the water must be drained. Therefore, stresses have to be faced only by pore air next to the stacks. This leads to higher pore water pressure and lower soil bearing capacity.

Driven Pile Foundations: it can be made of concrete, metal and wood. When placing these piles on the construction site, they were prefabricated. These are prefabricated while guided piles are made of concrete. Using a heap hammer, these piles are pushed. We displace the same amount of soil when these piles are pushed into the granular soils. 


  • Cast-in-situ Pile Foundations: it is a concrete pile. These piles are created by drilling holes in the soil to the correct depth and then filling the space with cement. Reinforcements are also used according to the specifications in the construction. Similar with drilled piers, such piles are of low size. This type of piles are either straight bored piles or cast at intervals of one or more bulbs. The piles of one or more lamps are considered piles that are under-reamed.
  • Cast-in-situ and Driven Piles: it  have both driven and cast-in-situ piles with advantages. The process for mounting a driven and cast-in-situ stack is as follows: using a mandrel installed into the base, a steel frame of stack diameter is driven into the ground. The mandrel is removed while moving the shell, and cement is pumped into the container. The shell is made of thin sheet steel (monotube piles) or corrugated or reinforced tubes (Armco welded pipes or standard seamless pipes). These types of batteries are called casing type batteries. The shell-less form is formed by scraping the shell while the cement is poured. The base of the shell is sealed with a conical tip that can be removed from the shell in both types of stacks.
