Piling Systems

Piling Systems

Unlike many of our competitors who specialise in one or two piling types, we use a wide variety of piling systems to create the most appropriate solution based on the needs of our client and their specific project. We take into account environmental and geotechnical considerations of the project site, efficiency of different piling solutions and the permanency of the required structure to offer the best piling foundation for your project. All of our piling systems are manufactured and installed under strict company quality guidelines that comply with all relevant standards and codes.

Screw piling: As Australia’s largest screw piling company we have pioneered their use in all types of projects across the country and internationally. Managing loads of up to 100 tonne or 1000kN our screw piles are environmentally friendly, vibration and spoil free, with high bearing and tension capacity. Installed many times faster than driven piles and suitable for all soil types (including areas of known contaminated land, acid sulphate areas and even harsh marine environments), they offer a cost effective and time saving solution to meet your project requirements.

Sheet piling: Able to penetrate depths of up to 24 metres, this option is commonly used to retain boundary walls during construction where adjacent buildings are able to tolerate the vibrations of the installation process. We manufacture a light weight sheet piling system using coils of sheet steel ranging from 1200 to 1500mm in width and 3 to 8mm thickness.

Bored piling: Generally used as a foundation solution where the ground conditions are considered fair to good, bored piles are constructed with circular augers and filled with concrete and steel reinforcement. They are very adaptable and offer a cost effective and quick solution to projects that require multiple load cases to be applied to the pile.

Contiguous Flight Auger (CFA) piling: Most suited to sites where the geotechnical conditions are soft or loose (e.g. water charged ground), this piling method provides a solution for sites that border existing structures, especially where there are low tolerances to vibration sensitivity.

Driven piles: Using timber or steel sections, driven piles are vibrated or hammered into the ground with our specialist hammer rigs. Because they produce no spoil they are well suited to areas of known contaminated land, acid sulphate areas and even harsh marine environments.
