Bored Piles in London
Open bore piling is used on larger and smaller-scale projects. The process consists of a rotating auger drill, which is drilled into the ground and withdrawn, whilst extracting the soil.
This process can be repeated until the desired depth is reached. A steel beam is then placed into the bored hole, which is filled with concrete to add reinforcement and secure the pile.

Bored piling can support heavy structures through load bearing techniques, which takes place in the friction between the soil and surface of the pile shaft.
Despite use on large and small projects, open bore piling is relatively vibration and noise-free compared to other piling methods. This makes the process ideal for use on residential, populated or environmentally sensitive areas.
Rotary bored piling is capable of boring through deep layers of rock. High torque piling rigs can penetrate the toughest underground obstructions.
