Driven piles can be used in a wide range of soil conditions, are quick to install and as they are a displacement technique, produce no spoil. We use fully reinforced, precast piles manufactured under strict quality controlled conditions enabling us to achieve capacities in excess of 1000kN. Single pile lengths can be linked using a mechanical interlocking joint enabling us to reach depths greater than each stand-alone section.
Using our fleet of Driven Piling rigs we are able to install the following types of pile:
Where Vemech® segmental precast piles are suitable, and where headroom or the ground’s bearing capacity is an issue, these 2.5m length sections and our bespoke restricted access driven rigs can be used, often enabling the piling mat to be reduced saving significant project costs.
The Vemech® pile is 200mm square diameter and has a safe working load of up to 350kN.
