What is a pile?
A pile is a structural element which is typically used to transfer the load from a building or structure, down below the grounds surface into the acceptable subsurface material or depth required to carry the specific load being imposed.
What types of piles do we offer?
Friction & End Bearing
How do I know which pile type I need?
We are able to better help you answer this question once there has been a completed geotechnical report. Once we have been able to review this and the structural loads, we can provide you with the most cost effective design-build option for your project.
Does size matter?
The type of subsurface material and the load imposed will dictate the size/ length required. With our current fleet we are able to provide you with piles up to 8’ in diameter and up to 120’ deep complete with a 13’ bell. Need a large diameter belled pile? We’re your solution.
Where do we operate?
What do I need to have prepared before a piling crew comes to my site?
It is 100% mandatory that a current first call or locate ticket is in place for the scope of work being conducted (piling) and that it remains current for the duration of the work. No ground disturbance shall take place until this has been completed.
