Every construction project begins with proper groundwork, and it is essential to hire professional and well-equipped contractors for the task. The groundwork will determine the overall quality and stability of your structure in the long run. Hence, it makes sense to hire seasoned groundwork contractors in London to make sure that your structure will have a strong and reliable base, as the foundation will depend on the weight of your structure. Professional groundwork contractors can identify and understand the required depth that is necessary to keep your structure sturdy. Likewise, they understand the strain and weight the structure will go through, and assess the exact amount of labour that is necessary to ensure the best results.

Piling aims to create a steady support for your structure in building sites and urban areas, especially where surface soil is weak. Where heavy planting is not allowed or access is restricted, the foundation for your structure may be constructed using micro piles. Also, known as ‘mini piles’, the solution provides an efficient and reliable alternative to conventional piling solutions, while ensuring minimal vibration. Micro piling is ideal for restricted access sites, as mini piles can be built in less than 2.8m of headroom in different sizes, and within existing walls measuring 400mm.

Concrete is one of the commonly used materials for creating pile foundations. Concrete pile foundations create stable structures by transferring the load to the layers of rock and soil that have excellent settlement characteristics and ample bearing capacity. Contractors use many different piling techniques depending on the application. Concrete pile foundations may or may not be ideal for your structure depending on the ground conditions, the load that needs support, presence of water, proximity to existing structures, accessibility, cost, and sensitivity to vibration and noise. Experts can help you decide.

Mini piles are deep foundations that are made using high-strength steel casings with a small diameter or a threaded bar. At times, they can be made using a combination of both materials. Mini piles are also known as ‘micro piles’, and their capacities typically depend on the profile of the subsurface and their size. For instance, capacities that have exceeded 1,000 tonnes have been made possible with strategic planning and high-quality materials used by professional piling contractors. Mini pile foundations are like other kinds of piling, but they are typically used on projects that require a smaller scale foundation. They are installed to make the ground ready to support a structure’s weight. Hence, they are driven down into soil before concrete foundations can be poured on top of them.
