Commercial Mini Piling Leicester

Piling is a technique used to strengthen the foundations of buildings. It works by placing piles into the ground and then pouring concrete over them, which provides support to the entire structure. This method has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially for new houses and extensions.

However, some projects can be hampered by ground conditions that prevent traditional piling. These include sites that are too difficult to access with construction vehicles or where headroom is too low. For these situations, mini piling is a good option.

The mini piling technique involves using smaller piles, which can be hand-held or sectional auger driven. This means that the equipment is much smaller than with normal piling, making it ideal for small spaces and tight corners.

Moreover, these mini piles can be installed in areas where the ground is too unstable to dig deep slap foundations. As a result, they can produce solid foundations that last for long periods of time.

It is also a good solution for sites where “heaving” – the process by which soil beneath a building swells and moves upwards – is an issue. This can often happen as a result of trees being removed, or when the ground absorbs too much water.

Another benefit of using mini piling is that it produces less noise and vibration than larger construction vehicles do. This is especially important when working in residential areas, as noise pollution and disturbance can be a major problem.

Residential Mini Piling Leicester

When it comes to building a home, extension or conservatory, one of the main concerns you’ll have is how to deal with difficult ground conditions. These can range from “heaving” – which is when the ground beneath your house swells & moves up due to the expansion of soil – to subsidence, where the ground beneath the house becomes unstable for too long.

This is where a professional mini pilling firm will come in handy! Purkelly Bros have been working in the area for over 30 years, providing a wide range of underpinning and piling services.

Our experienced team will be able to recommend the ideal solution for your needs. They will also be able to provide you with a quote for the work, which can be tailored to your budget.

We can offer you the best quality foundations for your project, ensuring they last a lifetime. We will design and install the perfect foundations for your needs, using our specialised equipment.

As well as being an effective and efficient way to build a foundation, mini pilling is eco-friendly. It uses less concrete and steel, which helps reduce the carbon footprint of your foundations.

For this reason, mini pilling is often recommended for projects that are based in residential areas or those that are environmentally sensitive. It also creates low levels of noise pollution and vibration, meaning it’s an excellent option for a new build or an extension in a densely populated area.

Another benefit of mini piling is that it’s a great solution for restricted access areas. It can be used in tight spaces, and it doesn’t require large construction vehicles on site, so you can easily get the job done without any hassle!

Bridges Mini Piling Leicester

Mini piling is a fantastic alternative to traditional foundations for new builds and industrial projects. It allows you to reach greater depths without the need for a big machinery, meaning less mess and costs. It also uses minimal vibration, making it a suitable choice for noise sensitive areas such as home extensions and conservatory builds in residential areas.

The benefits of using a mini pilling system for your project are numerous, but the most notable is that it is the best solution for many challenging ground conditions. Depending on your specific site, you may be faced with challenges like low headroom, difficult access, and restrictive soils that can prevent a successful new build or extension project. If this is the case, mini piling could be just what you need to get your project moving on time and within budget.

Our team has the knowledge and experience to help you design the right solution for your project, no matter the size of your job or its complexity. From New Builds, House Extensions/Conversions to Conservatory Foundations and commercial projects, we’ll provide you with the perfect piling solution, economically and in the shortest possible time.

Retrofitting Mini Piling Leicester

Mini piling is a foundation solution that is particularly useful for restrictive or low headroom projects. It is an excellent alternative to traditional underpinning and can be used for strengthening existing structures including bridges, retaining walls and floor slabs. It can also be used as a replacement footing for new build houses and factories when ground conditions become unfavourable.

Vxcel ground engineering team in Leicester offers a wide range of mini pile solutions for all types of projects, both residential and commercial. Our team has the expertise to carry out any size of project and we can provide a full, insured design service.

We can install mini piles via several techniques, based on the ground conditions and the requirements of the site. Our team can install both horizontal and vertical piles. We can also install mini piles using a sectional flight auger rig, which is ideal for restricted job sites.

The Verdant development in Leicester is one of our largest projects to date and will see a total of 90 450mm diameter sectional flight auger piles installed internally within the basement and externally for a crane base. This will be complemented by a variety of other piles, such as ground anchors and micro piles. The building will be a mixture of ground and air-tight construction, as well as being eco-friendly. It is estimated to be completed in 2024.
