Bored piling for construction creates ideal circumstances, which is why it can be favoured over any conventional footings. Since bored piling does not require large excavations to be installed, any subsequent backfill is minimised which makes it an attractive choice for building sites. Being able to extend through soft and pliable soils, as well as below frost penetration and seasonal moisture, it makes an option that is more versatile than other footings. Installation of bored piling also causes less disturbance of other piles and other parts of a site. They are a great foundation solution for rocky conditions as they minimise any foundation settlement. This makes bored piling a preference for many design situations as they are able to be used many different foundations, thriving and in conditions that are fair to good, especially if there is no chance of any shallow water tables. The vertical loads used to make bored piling structures are conducive to environments were the soil is cohesive and where there is no issue with rock or soil removal. All of these factors make bored piling a great option in construction. If you are considering using bored piling for your construction site or want to find out more, the Piling Experts can help you find the right solution for your construction project.
What makes up bored piling is a reinforced concrete foundation that is able to support structures using heavy vertical loads. The way bored piling is installed by casting it in to place on the construction site, differing from other types of concrete pile foundations which are normally pre-cast. A hole is drilled into the soil or foundation using special equipment that is fitted with specially designed drilling tools called a bored piling machine. It also has special buckets and grabs that remove the soil and rock to allow room for the installation. These screw piles are able to be drilled up to sixty metres deep into the soil and at a diameter up to 2.4 metres. Foundations made from bored piling methods are specifically used for buildings and other structures that require an increase load as they are able to handle loads that range into thousands of tons. These methods are also able to be used to create undergrounds structures and to reinforce earth if needed. Conventional methods of laying foundations can require a lot of extra planning, an increased amount of time and create a lot of mess that requires even more time, money and energy to discard. This is why bored piling is such a great alternative, as it is a method that requires less time, less money and can be completed with half the mess.
