Mini Piling, Building & Civil Engineering Services

Mini Piling & Pin Piling

Piling used to support existing defective foundations or individual structures in difficult working conditions or unsuitable ground conditions. This work would normally incorporate reinforced concrete beams or pads placed underneath the existing foundation or placed to receive the structure and supported each end or where required by small diameter piles.

Ground Beams

Reinforced concrete beams placed at or around ground level designed to be the foundations for supporting the loading of buildings or structures. They can rest directly on the ground or can be supported by piles or piers if ground conditions dictate.

Rafts & Needle Rafts

Reinforced concrete slabs placed at ground floor level designed to support the loading of buildings or structures. They can rest directly on the ground or can be supported by piles if required. Needle rafts more normally used in existing buildings have projections on the edge of the slab “needles” which penetrate the existing structure to provide support.

Underpinning

Traditionally this would encompass mass concrete fill under the foundation of an existing building or structure to distribute the loading across a greater area or onto a stronger strata. Alternatively needle beams under the existing foundation supported by mini piles could be utilised.

Retaining Walls

Reinforced concrete or composite walls designed to withstand the horizontal loading of unequal ground levels where the height difference is such that the soil will not support itself.

Machine Bases

Reinforced concrete slabs designed to support the weight of machinery and the potential in use loading of machinery placed on them. They could be supported by piles if ground conditions dictate.

Pressure Grouting

Permeation grouting is the direct injection of a fluid grout into the ground to fill the voids between particles and improve the load bearing capability of the ground. Injection methods are tailored specifically to a project and the choice of materials offer hundreds of options ranging from cement slurries to chemical solutions.

Specialist Building & Civil Engineering Work

Some or all of the above could be used in basements, lift pits, sewage treatment plants etc. constructed to the designs of others to a high degree of precision. Our design and calculation service is also available to problem solve, design and provide the documentation required to prove the suitability of the proposed work.
