Restricted Access Piling

Restricted Access Piling In Essex & London

We are developing Restricted Access Piling is utilizing a mini pile with a limited width. This makes them light and cheap, yet ready to help a significant load.

For the most widely recognized kind of restricted access piling in Harlow, an empty steel shaft is either screwed or penetrated the ground. Grout or cement would then be able to be poured in to frame the pile, with the soil upheld all through by the steel shaft. This implies that, in contrast to the customary old technique, no additional backings are required, even where the soil is weak.

On the other hand, particularly if there’s restricted headroom, sectional auger mini piles can be utilized. This includes boring down and adding different flight segments as you go. Contingent upon the soil’s strength, the segments can either be eliminated or left set up while the concrete is poured.

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.

What are the different types of Restricted Access Piling?

Bored mini piling:

One of the fundamental advantages of this kind of mini piling is that it can assist with downplaying vibrations, which is more significant on certain destinations than others. If there is a neighbourhood close by that shouldn’t be disturbed, for instance, then this type of piling is used.

Drop weight:

This is a sort of mini piling that is particularly helpful on projects where there is just restricted headroom thus not a great deal of room to work in. For example, lodging advancements can frequently utilize drop weight type of mini piling.

Driven mini piling:

Driven mini piling is hammered into the ground with the utilization of vibration. This technique for piling is appropriate for foundations in non-firm soils, high water table grounds and for soils that are polluted. Driven piling can be projected in position by utilizing impermanent or long-lasting steel packaging. They can likewise be ready off-site by utilizing pre-projected piles, which can be made utilizing steel, wood, concrete or a mix of these.

What are the different methods used for mini piling?


1. Augered mini piling:

This technique includes the utilization of augers to bore into the ground and move the soil onto the upper level. It is great for both steady and temperamental ground conditions. For shaky ground, in any case, particularly where penetrating could bring about the side removal of soil, transitory coverings can be utilized close by the augers to prevent the arising issue. When the penetrating arrives at the ideal profundity, the steel shafts are installed, and grout or cement is poured. The upside of this kind of mini piling is that it’s typically budget-friendly and time-effective.

2. Bottom Driven Mini Piling:

This type of method is proficient and appropriate for most ground conditions. A shut ended light walled steel tube is driven in short lengths utilizing an inner drop hammer onto a dry substantial attachment. The cylinders are joined by a full non-primary filet weld and as the installation continues the pile is driven to know the length of the set before. When the necessary depth has arrived at the cylinder is loaded up with high droop cement or grout and a solitary bar or enclosure is embedded for support.

3. Sectional Flight auger Mini piling:

This would be the best technique to consider if your site is in an extremely limited region with impressively low working size. The fundamental difference between this strategy and augered mini piling is the kind of boring pieces utilized. With sectional flight auger piling, the drills are empty, making it likely to pour concrete before the auger is removed. This procedure additionally guarantees that substantial pouring proceeds as the drills are eliminated. Thusly, any unsteady soil or water is pushed out of the ground.


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.
