Pile contracting is an essential aspect of geotechnical engineering that deals with construction and installation of piles.
Piles are used in the construction of high-rise buildings, bridges, transmission towers, chimneys, and tall structures.
Pile contracting involves the following activities
Our well experienced and qualified team of Geotechnical engineers can provide expert guidance on the selection and design of the piles, as well as the installation method.
Pile drilling machines are used for the installation of piles and are designed to drill deep into the soil or rock. They are commonly used in situations where the soil or rock is too hard or too dense for driving piles. These machines can be used to install various types of piles, including drilled shafts, auger-cast piles, and micropiles, depending on the project requirements and soil conditions.
Key aspects of pile contracting
To determine the appropriate pile type, size, and length based on the site’s soil conditions, structural loads, and other project-specific factors.
Expertise and equipment necessary to install piles accurately and efficiently.
Different methods of pile installation may be employed, including driven piles (such as precast concrete or steel piles driven into the ground using impact hammers), drilled piles (such as cast-in-place concrete piles drilled into the ground), or auger piles (using a rotating helical screw to install piles).
Conduct various tests, such as integrity testing, load testing, and pile driving monitoring, to verify the performance and capacity of the piles.
Safety and Compliance
Prioritize safety during all stages of pile installation.
Adhere to safety regulations and industry best practices to minimize risks to workers, nearby structures, and the environment.
At VGeotech Experts, our experience in executing multiple projects driven by guidance of Dr. Abhinav Mane enables us to choose appropriate method of piling suitable for site conditions and client requirements.
These machines use a rotating drill bit to bore through the soil and rock, and are often used for drilling large diameter piles in hard soil and rock formations.
CFA machines use a continuous auger to drill through soil and create a pile shaft. Concrete is then pumped through the hollow stem of the auger as it is withdrawn, creating a continuous concrete column that forms the pile.
These machines use a heavy weight, hammer or vibratory device to drive piles into the ground. They are often used for shorter piles in soft soil and are especially useful in situations where noise and vibrations need to be minimized.
These are small-diameter piles that are drilled and grouted into the soil. They are often used for foundation support in limited access or environmentally sensitive areas.
