Heavy structures require their loads to be transferred to competent ground strata. Piles are structural elements that transfer vertical, horizontal and moment loads from the structure and dissipate them through the ground. Care is taken to ensure that settlement is reduced to within acceptable limits of the final structure.
Piles are either replacement; typically, the ground is replaced with concrete, or displacement; typically, steel, or pre-cast concrete is driven into the ground.
Suttles offer a full range of piled foundations for all our client's needs. This duality between replacement and displacement systems means that the most appropriate solution is selected for the project’s constraints and environment.
