Specialists n drilling and constructing marine piling for jetty’s and pontoons.
Piling is a type of deep foundation, used to transfer the load to a deeper level than is possible with a traditional shallow foundation. Vertical columns of concrete, steel or wood, or a combination, are driven deep into the ground to give extra support to the building that sits on top.
Traditionally piles were made of timber, but they’re now usually concrete, often reinforced or cased in steel. Positioned at regular intervals such as the intersections between walls, they’re driven down to denser, firmer levels, preventing either uplift or collapse and often linked by reinforced concrete ground beams, pile-caps or raft slabs.
