At Geobond, we can provide mini piling on a variety of residential & commercial projects. Micro piling is used to create foundations for smaller spaces, such as domestic extensions.
Geobond’s mini piling rigs are capable of drilling several forms of piles in various ground conditions & within difficult access areas.
Our experienced engineers will carry out an initial assessment of your property to decide on appropriate piling design & method.
Mini Piled Foundations
Mini piling is a popular piling method for smaller projects & residential properties, such as conservatories or extensions. The headroom for mini piling projects is 2.7m. Our mini piling rigs can operate within tight access areas & our smallest rigs can fit through a standard doorway.
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 & depth of the piles will depend on variables such as ground conditions & the type of rig used. Diameter of the piles typically range between 100mm & 450mm.
Mini piling can strengthen existing structures, externally & internally, providing secure foundations for:
- New houses
- Retaining walls
- Foundations for new roads & other infrastructure projects
Why choose mini piling
Mini piling is not as disruptive as other piling methods. It creates low levels of noise pollution & vibration, making it useful for existing buildings, residential areas, & locations with environmental sensitivity.
There are different types of mini piling techniques, suitable for different projects. They include;
- Open bore piling
- Contiguous bored piled walls
- Ground Beams
- King posts
