We are a specialist piling contractor company based in the UK and can aid any construction project across the United Kingdom.

Piling work is a vital element in all forms of construction, as it works to create deep foundations for building structures. Piling is a specific process that relies on inserting sheet piles, timber piles, and other piled foundations deep into the ground to create the foundation for any structure.

This process requires specialist heavy-load equipment as well as durable materials to maintain the structural integrity of every building, and this is the work our company provides.

As no installation can go ahead without a solid foundation, working with a specialist piling contractor is also required, and we are the team for the job.

Why Use Us?

We are accredited piling contractors based in the UK and provide stable ground conditions for all forms of construction. Piling can create deep and solid foundations for buildings and is necessary to maintain structural integrity.

Our company has the necessary piling certifications to allow us to work on construction sites across the region as well as handle heavy-load machinery. We also have over 10 years of experience working with piled foundations and can offer the two main types of piling – displacement and replacement piles.

This experience and our skills allow us to work with all kinds of construction teams, helping aid building projects across the region.

As we have a long history working in the region, creating the necessary ground conditions for construction, we have developed a great relationship with leading market suppliers allowing us to be competitive on price.

We provide multiple forms of driven piles based on the ground conditions of the site and the required bearing capacity of the project and can offer great deals on all materials because of this.

What are the Types of Piling?

While there are two main processes for piling in the UK, there are many different types of piles that can be used for this based on the requirements of the project.

Our company offers all forms of piles, including the following types:

Driven Sheet Piles

Driven piles are the most common form of foundation used and can be done using several materials. Commonly, timber piles are used for this process in coastal areas, but precast concrete piles and steel can also be used based on the conditions of the site.

For this process, the piles face a deep insertion into the soil, where they will cause an equal amount of soil to move to the side of the piles, which causes compacting. This increases the bearing capacity of the foundation.

Bored Piles

Bored piling is done using concrete, but for this method, deep holes are drilled into the ground, and concrete is poured in.

As the concrete fills the bores, these foundations transfer loads to the deep rock and soil layers underneath, which is ideal for bridges and flood protection.

This method can also be taken a step further and reinforced with a steel cage once the holes are widened at the base.

There are two common subtypes of bored piles:

Rotary Bored Piling

This method is used when there are significant obstructions in the ground, For this, a temporary case is installed into the bores for support, and ground, stones, and soil are removed from inside. This allows for a steel reinforcement cage to be installed, following the concrete before the casing is removed.

Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) Piling

Continuous flight auger pile construction is very similar to rotary board piles but does not use temporary casing. Instead, bores are drilled directly into the ground before being filled with concrete. This is the most common and effective method of bored piling used across the UK.

Secant Piling

Done using reinforced concrete, or a weaker precast concrete based on the configuration required, these piles are installed at regular intervals into the ground but with a slight overlap to offer water tightness.

Contiguous Piling

This is similar to secant piling, except instead of overlapping the piles, a small space is required between the piles. The size of the gaps between elements ensures low noise and vibration but will vary based on the kind of soil where the piles are installed.

Kingpost Piling

These are steel H piles that are embedded into a concrete-filled bore in the soil or ground. These vertical steel piles are higher or the same height as the height of the structure on the surface, which allows for building from the ground up.

This is a cost-effective temporary solution compared to sheet piles.

Tubular Piling

This process is done using a steel tube pile, which is either open or closed-ended. Steel tube piles are often used in offshore structures due to the low impact and vibration nature of each pile.

Each pile may also be coated on the inside to improve the structural load bearing.

Screw Piling

Screw piling can be considered a form of mini piling as it is best for smaller loads. With this technique, the screw pile is installed into the ground, soil, or sand in short sections with between 1.5m to 2m between each hole.

They have the capacity for lighter load constructions, such as single storey, and are popular temporary methods due to how easy it can be to take out the steel pile from the hole in the land.

Aggregate Piles

Aggregate piles are made of rock or stone and offer a similar foundation structure to concrete pile installation. However, as the name suggests, this foundation is made using stone or rock, which is installed into the ground until compact, as opposed to concrete.

How much is Piling UK?

The average cost of piling in the UK can vary between £150 to £400 per linear metre, based on the project.

Other factors can also contribute to the cost, such as the type of pile required, the installation process used, and the contractor you work with. For example, mini piling using cheaper materials such as concrete or wood will cost significantly less than the piling process for larger constructions like bridges.
