The Grundomat piling method uses compressed air to drive piles into the ground. The compressed air comes from above-ground equipment which is small enough in size to minimise levels of vibration in areas with restricted access, or in underground environments. This bottom-driven system drives steel tubes of up to 150mm in diameter to a predetermined setting.
It is possible to weld more tubes together, as needed, until such a point where they can reach the design depth.
The experienced piling contractors at Piling Solutions North West cover our hometown of Warrington and all locations across the surrounding areas, including Bolton, Blackburn and Wigan. We are a family-owned and family-run company with vast experience in Grundomat piling and a wider range of similar systems.
Grundomat Piling follows a basic sequence:
Our piling contractors use the Grundomat method in areas with confinements, where narrow spaces make access difficult, and in basements or underground sites across Warrington, Bolton, Blackburn and Wigan. Grundomat piling is particularly suited to projects where the contractors need to minimise noise and vibration.
The system has multiple applications on smaller builds, like house extensions, conservatories, orangeries, garages, porches and garden rooms. Standard tube diameters range from 100mm to 150mm with a bearing capacity of no more than 90kN.
Grundomat Piling minimises environmental impact, not just in the limitation of noise and vibrations, but also because there is no piling rig or soil removal required to complete the work. Because the compressed air source isn’t contained within the restricted area, disruption keeps to a minimum.
Piling Solutions North West makes construction safety a key priority and keeps its piling contractors up to speed with all developments related to safety guidelines, regulations and legislation. We never start a project without completing risk assessments and developing method statements which keep our contractors, and those from other companies, well protected.
Our objective is to maintain hazard-free working conditions throughout all stages of the Grundomat piling process.
