How Mini Piles Are Installed

Mini piles are the ideal choice for building foundations within restricted access sites, especially those with limited headroom. They can also be installed quickly, offering a high load capacity and the ability to penetrate almost any ground condition. They are also great for strengthening existing structures and stabilising slopes.

The first step is a site survey. This is completed by our team of inspectors and engineers who will gather data about your construction site including soil conditions, detailed project requirements and more. This information is used to generate a full load calculation that is then used to design the piles. The finalised design is then used to drill boreholes on the construction site at predetermined dimensions and depth.

Mini Piles: Applications, Benefits, and Installation Techniques

Mini piling can be carried out using a variety of methods depending on your ground conditions and requirements, from the use of lagging to the installation of sectional auger piles. These are used in situations where it’s not possible to use a continuous flight auger (CFA) rig due to a lack of headroom.

These piles are designed and manufactured on-site, allowing you to build extensions or other structures within areas where deep foundations would be impractical. They are also an ideal solution for new builds or other large projects that require a strong and robust support structure. This type of piling is particularly useful in noise-sensitive locations as it causes minimal disturbance and vibration during the installation process. It also works well in both compression and tension loads.
