Augered Piling

Augered piling solutions can be more appropriate where noise and vibration have to be kept to a minimum. That means we can create deep foundations with the minimum of disruption.

Not all piling projects are straightforward. Where access is more limited, our team can help with their years of experience in augered piling.

From design to installation, our team use precision German-made Klemm augered piling rigs and our own range of specialist aggregates to complete your brief.

We employ techniques which include:

  • Continuous flight auger (CFA) and segmental flight auger (SFA) hollow stem injected piles
  • Open bored concrete piles
  • Cased bored concrete piles
  • Screw piles

These techniques can be used for bearing piles and retaining walls. We can also assist you with pre-augering for driven pile applications – all with the reassurance of our proven customer service and expertise.

 

Contiguous Piling

A sequence of closely spaced bored cast-in-situ concrete piles are used to form retaining walls for excavation support where the ground water table level is known to be below the excavation depth.  The process involves a CFA pile boring rig to form piles in a sequence that ensures bore stability.  Piles are reinforced with full depth steel cages that are plunged into the wet concrete pile.  Piles are typically spaced with a 100mm clear spacing.
Our fleet of CFA rigs can cast piles from 300mm diameter to 800mm diameter and up to 23m deep.

Secant Piling

Similar to contiguous piling, secant piling employs cast-in-situ concrete piles to form retaining walls for excavation support, but where the ground water table level is known to be above the excavation depth. Piles are interlocked by 150mm to ensure a watertight construction. Primary piles are installed first using a low strength concrete, followed by secondary piles cut into the primary piles and cast in a structural concrete and reinforced with steel bars or structural steel sections. A temporary guidewall is required to ensure tolerance is limited.

Kingpost Piling

Kingpost piles make use of structural UC or UB sections that can either be driven or cast into the ground using CFA piling equipment.  Kingposts are typically spaced at 2.5m centre spacing’s to accommodate either timber sleepers or precast concrete plank infills.  Kingpost piling is an economical solution for temporary excavations and is particularly useful for installation from the excavated level.
