Mini Piled Foundations

The headroom for mini piling projects tends to be under 2.8 meters in height. A mini piling rig used for mini piling can operate within tight-access areas, again making mini piling a popular method for residential projects.
Mini piling consists of hollow steel shafts that are driven, drilled, or screwed into the ground using various piling equipment, then filled with either concrete or grout to form piles. The diameter and depth of the piles will depend on variables such as ground conditions and the type of rig used. Diameters of the piles typically range from between 100mm to 300mm. Geobonds qualified assessors will survey your property to decide the correct conditions for your individual project.
