COMMERCIAL PILING


 

Experts in piling and underpinning with more than 25 years’ industry experience, Belowground Ltd offers commercial and residential clients across the UK a broad range of piling techniques to deliver superior foundation and underpinning solutions.

From our head office in Exeter, and our branches in London and Bristol, our specialist piling contractors use a variety of modern piling rigs that are suitable for use in nearly all ground conditions to meet our clients’ specific construction needs.

A type of ground treatment that forms the basis of construction, piling entails the driving of piles into the earth below ground level, with pile foundations used to strengthen the soil which will then support the weight load of the building to be erected on top of it. The bigger the building, the deeper the foundations required.

A variety of piles can be used to transfer the building load to the ground. With the exception of sheet piling, which is typically used to support the lateral load of the building and to also act as a supporting wall, the pile varieties used in construction include auger bored piles, steel cased driven piles, and screw piles.

Once our pile driving experts have visited your site to assess it, they will be able to advise you on the most suitable piling materials and techniques to use on your project, and they will happily provide you with a free estimate on the materials and services you require. Our materials and services are highly cost-effective, and we have worked with a broad range of commercial and private clients across the UK.

After we have completed the piling process, we are able to provide you with further services, including the installation of reinforced ground beams and/or slabs. For a free, no obligation piling quote, please contact Belowground Ltd today. 

 

  1. Auger Bored Piling
  2. Steel Cased Driven Piles
We offer a range from 200mm through to 600mm, and up to 25m deep auger bored piles, using a range of rigs that are suitable for the smallest most restricted sites, up to large open industrial sites.
Driven piles are often used on sites where ground conditions may be soft, granular or wet.

Driven piles are formed from thin walled cylindrical steel pile tube. These are driven into the ground using a drop hammer piling rig. Individual pile tube lengths vary from 1 to 3 meters, and are fully welded together during the pile driving process. The piles are driven to a predetermined set, calculated by our structural engineer in advance. The piles are then filled with reinforcement and concrete.

Belowground Ltd are able to install bottom driven piles with diameters ranging from 100mm up to 273mm.
