The idea of investing in commercial piling may be new to you as a business owner, or perhaps you’re looking to learn a bit more about this technique – fear not, we have you covered. If you’re looking to improve the structural stability and condition of a building, or build up sturdy foundations for a new build, commercial piling is fantastic. Effectively placing the weight of a building into deeper and denser soil for additional sturdiness, let Below Ground take you through these complex yet worthwhile processes.
Piling is a popular foundational approach for commercial and domestic clients, transferring the weight of a structure onto strong thick soil found deep within the earth. Foundations are thoroughly bored through the ground within a specified area, strengthening a structure and replacing the existing surrounding weakened soil. Traditionally, piling is most useful in a commercial setting, because larger commercial buildings are often heavier than residential houses, requiring additional work for their foundations.
Quality and longevity are the least you can expect from piling, with the utilities in question made from varied materials. Steel, timber and precast concrete are just three popular choices, with each possessing different characteristics and benefits. Neat presentation is achieved by the end of a piling process, as the results cannot be seen once construction is finished. Pile designs are also made to specification by us, and will always be installed by a knowledgeable team. Within areas where you can’t drill holes, piling is probably a good alternative.
