Piling is a type of deep foundation solution that involves the installation of vertical supports called piles that are usually made from materials like timber, concrete, and steel. The choice of material is often dependent on the state of soil on the site among some other factors. This tends to be decided by a trained professional so they can analyse the correct requirements needed to provide a good job. This is because some may be more suited to concrete whereas others call for steel instead.
Most of the time traditional piling is the go-to when it comes to a job like this. However, due to the size of the piles and large machines needed to construct the piles, this isn’t always the best choice. Because of this there has been other methods that have been invented, to help battle these issues.
Mini piling is a solution that makes use of the piles with a smaller diameter in order to be used in specialised projects. For example, sites where headroom may be restricted or where access with large vehicles may be an issue. Mini piling is mainly used on a residential scale as most residential sites are best suited to this method. Mini piling also provides the same strength and stability as the traditional piles despite them being a lot smaller, this is because the methods are implemented in the exact same way. Which allows the piles to share the load of a structure equally across its multiple points of strength in order to reinforce longevity.
