Bored pile construction
Bored piles are steel pipes installed into the ground by means of boring. If necessary, concrete may be cast into the pipe and rebar used. The piles are mainly bored until the rock and, if necessary, they may be extended by means of welding or thread insert joints. Bored piles may be steel pipe piles, steel core piles or CSG piles.
Bored pile construction is particularly suitable when there are hard-to-penetrate fillings at the construction site, there are large point loads in the structures, the rock surface is heavily sloping, the piles must reach a certain level of penetration, the surrounding structures are sensitive to vibration, good positional accuracy is required and the piles are subject to tension (anchored bored piles).
We have a comprehensive fleet suitable for all types of bored pile driving ranging from the reinforcement of foundations to large-diameter piling.
Reinforced concrete piles
- The piles are able to carry loads immediately after installation
- The piles may be extended
- No sinking
- High load-bearing capacity
- Penetration to the rock can be ensured using rock shoes
Steel pipe piles
- Concrete is cast into the pipe using rebars
- Small and large-diameter steel pipe piles
- Can be extended by means of welding
- Takes tensile strengths as well
