Piling & ground beams for 2 no new build detached houses.

The piling and ground beams works were required due to low strength soil present, together with a high water table.

34 no 300mm dia tremie grouted open bored piles were installed to average depths of 10m using a limited access piling rig which only required a minimal piling mat.

Our piling contractors managed to undertake and install 1 plot per week.

A series of 450mm square R.C. ground beams were then formed to link the piles, taking a further 2 weeks per plot.

All ground beams were formed using Pecafil shuttering.
