Bored Piling In Essex & London

Bored Piling is high-capacity, cast-in-place elements built using a conservative Kelly bar and auger system. Whether fitted as specific foundation basics, in a pile cap collection, or a spongy wall, we are ready to deliver you with an adjusted bored pile solution. Bored pile foundations are appropriate for all kinds of soil conditions and likened with conventional driven piling procedures, bored piling activities produce less noise and vibration.

Static load trials are used to validate the dimensions of bored piles. The most common response frame is the kentledge system. Also used are reaction piles, to offer workable resistance. Conventional static load tests offer valuable data about the actual capacity of the installed piles, the conforming design molds, and the supply of load along the length of the pile.

The prime piling team were excellent - leveraging their expertise to manage the complexities of the site and working round the the poor foundations of the existing building. Great level of service, soup to nuts - fundamental activities (e.g. shuttering) were included and not an added extra as some other people had quoted. highly recommended!

Prime piling have just finished working for us- I had zero experience or knowledge of them or Piling before - They arrived on schedule & explained what was required and just got on with it. Despite finding some inevitable problems in an awkward location, Jamie and his guys swept them aside in a very professional manner. They left the site in good order every night and always consulted with us on best and cost effective option. I will definitely be using them again and we are very comfortable to leave a review and / or recommend to others. A 5 star company......

We used Prime Piling for our extension. We have found them extremely reliable, thorough and professional. They came when they said they would come, finished when they said they would finish and did the work to a high standard which was approved by the building controller.
Prime Piling were great on the job that grew more and more difficult by the day at no fault of their own. Jamie and his team were responsive and kept me up to date throughout the project even offering me help and advice. Would definitely use them again and recommend them to others.

We found Jamie and the team to be very experienced professionals in the groundwork/piling services. It took us some time to find reliable company and we were not disappointed with our choice. Initially, we had a wrong evaluation by the appointed structural engineers and Jaimie managed to find a solution without delaying our project. Very professional, calm, reliable.

Jamie and Kieran were fantastic. Jamie kept us informed during the project and the workmanship was great. I wish I had been in contact with Jamie earlier in the process, as he’s keen to keep the costs down, especially during the design phase with the engineer. I would highly recommend getting in touch with Jamie and Samantha for your piling and job.

After an initial inspection the quotation was agreed. The engineers commenced the work on the due date on time and performed the job in a clean professional and helpful way. I was impressed by their attention to detail and their willingness to adapt if and when needed. I would have absolutely delight in recommending this company for piling work again and if you need a reference you may contact me though them.

Our Recent Work

Bored Piling

Rotary bored piling with specially designed drilling tools

Rotary bored piling (RBP) uses a mechanism, called a piling rig, with particularly designed drilling tools together with buckets and augers to eliminate soil and rock. These tools are used to drag into the ground frequently, eliminating spoil as the pile proceeds until the design depth is touched.

Key advantages of using Rotary bored piling:

The advantages of Rotary Bored Piling over CFA piling are the attainable improved pile capacities. So, by using casing, an exposed hole can be designed in higher diameters to great depths. This allows augering or coring to form sockets into deep and capable strata; installing long, multi-sectioned, and/or complex strengthening cages; or multifaceted pile composition and load cells to regulate the maximum load bulk or confirm design molds. RBPs more profound than 60m are common and recent drifts have gotten piles that are over 70m deep.

Process of bored piling works

Before the primary construction procedure and Bored Piling works, soil testing is done to regulate the soil features where the concrete project will stand. The procedures that make the foundation of the building such as bored piling, and sheet piling are important procedures that could direct the building of any project to fruitful results. With essential depths and the use of active machines like hydraulic drilling machines, boring could be completed with comfort from the hands of true specialists in the construction pitch. The procedures of bored piling are less loud and can certify more strength to the basics. Bored piling can also be helpful to the soil where it positions because it can hold the soil in place. Building foundations usually use bored piles to sustenance the essential structure of the building, guarantee strong clearance ability of the soil, and use the rocks and soil for sturdier bearing capacity.

Through bored piles, spoils from the dump are removed and replaced with more well-organized piles with a higher volume to stand firm or solid. The reinforced concrete piling methods like micro piling and sheet piling are beneficial in lofty and hefty buildings in urban areas. Houses and other commercials building that has condescending buildings have used bored piling in their primary construction procedures. This is the motive why they are pliable to the weights of high floors and continued intact during and afterward low-intensity earthquakes or even the higher ones.



Frequently Asked Questions

Piling is the process of inserting structural piles into the ground that will become the base of the building. Piles are required where soil and earth are performing poorly and are used to spread the load of a building and firm the ground. They are a cost-effective approach to combating corrosion and are proven to significantly improve the life expectancy of a structure

The size of the trench depends on the size of the ground beam to be installed. For our typical ground beams to an extension an excavation of 600mm deep and 450mm wide is sufficient. Please ring for advice.

There are a number of reasons it may be: A site investigation has highlighted that the ground is unsuitable and un-useable to a depth of more than 2 metres. Removal costs for the excavation of traditional deep trench foundations are too expensive. Foundation trenches are not stable and health and safety, therefore, becomes an issue. There is a high-water table. Where there are soils such as clay that are likely to swell or shrink excessively depending on the amount of water content.

The job of the pile is to distribute the weight of the structure evenly. They are placed into the ground using a pile driver. Holding the piles perfectly vertical, this machine hammers each structure into the ground and also acts as a crane.

For a typical house extension, the work can take around 2-3 days, depending on the depth driven and services requested. For more complex projects, contact us for a more specific time frame.

Mini piling in Essex and Colchester is a type of specialist piling that incorporates a specific arrangement and number of driven pile and screw pile varieties. It allows for the expansion or extension of a building, while also safeguarding against ground heave and subsidence. Crucially, mini piling is often a cheaper, faster option than traditional deep trench foundations.
