Here at Belowground Ltd, we have over 25 years’ experience working in the domestic and commercial building foundation industry, regularly providing homeowners and business clients with our wide range of expert foundation and underpinning services. From concrete foundation repair to sheet piling installation, we have expertise in a number of piling techniques.
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.
Our expert steel and concrete foundation experts will arrive at your building site to asses it and then advise you on the best course of action for your project. With their skills and knowledge, they’ll be able to ascertain whether to use concrete foundations or utilise a different piling material or technique. From there, you’ll receive a free estimate quote on the work that is required for the project. Working for so long and with such a diverse group of commercial and private clients means that we have a range of options available and that the materials and service we can provide you will be high quality without breaking the bank.
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.
