Housing Sector

Van Elle provides a full range of services for housebuilders, from ground investigation, ground improvement and ground stabilisation alongside driven and continuous flight auger (CFA) piles complimented by Smartfoot precast modular beam foundations.

Site Investigation can be delivered by Strata Geotechnics to provide geotechnical and environmental information ahead of land purchase or detailed design stages. Interpretive reporting and strategies can also be provided.

Ahead of construction Van Elle can provide a complete range of piling solutions including driven precast piles for fast and economic installation or CFA and other techniques where loadings will be higher such as medium to high-rise buildings for apartments.

Smartfoot is a post tensioned precast modular foundation system that has a number of advantages compared to traditional trench foundations and over other modular systems and can be employed with a range of piled solutions and is installed by Van Elle’s own specialist teams.
