Before we look at mini piling, foundation piling and Grundomat piling techniques in more detail a little further into our website, we thought it might be beneficial for you to learn more about what piling entails from a wider perspective. Piling Solutions North West, from Warrington, offers a wide range of services to the domestic and commercial sectors.
We cover all North West areas, including Bolton, Blackburn and Wigan.
Pilings are foundations which are either driven or bored through the ground. When used over a specified length or area, they carry and transfer weight loads. Most often, we use them beneath existing buildings, or on those under construction, where there are structural weaknesses due to soil conditions.
Put simply, piling is an option used when the potential load-bearing capacity of soil isn’t adequate or stable enough to absorb the structural load of heavy construction work.
We can provide services related to the following:
Based on the system we use, Piling Solutions North West can stabilise new builds, builds under development, property extensions, garages and conservatories. Piling is also an option for strengthening floors in factories and commercial builds in Warrington, Bolton, Blackburn, Wigan and the surrounding areas.
No job is ever too big or too small for us, and we have years of experience in projects with poor ground conditions, restricted access and environmental issues. We like to think of piling as a ground engineering process which also covers individual project types such as underpinning, restorations, piled slabs and reinforced concrete slabs.
It is important that piling contractors design around soil and load conditions. When planning, we consider the axial, bending and shear stresses which could occur through the horizontal movement of piles beneath the soil. Piling may also need to absorb the uplift load of tall structures which suffer from forces like high winds or, in coastal areas, even waves.
Choosing the correct material for a piling project is complex because of the load-bearing calculations required.
Experience in calculating the potential carrying capacities of piling, and our understanding of soil mechanics, has made us a preferred choice for domestic and commercial projects, as well as for work in the industrial sector. Our piling contractors offer a full site surveying and consultation service, working closely with homeowners, businesses, main contractors and developers to deliver safety, stability and reassurance.
