Piling has been around for thousands of years! Piling is used to reinforce deep foundations but inserting piles – long, vertical supports – into the earth to support the weight of a construction project or structure. Piles with a diameter between 100 and 600 millimetres are considered “mini piles”, but they can still reach over 50 meters into the earth!
Mini piling is more suitable for a range of environments, for a variety of different reasons! Due to their smaller, mini piles are less taxing to produce, yielding a number of environmental and economic benefits. Let’s a take a look:
Mini piling is most suited for difficult terrains! Not only because mini piles are physically smaller, making them easier to transport to site, but also because the piles are easier to manoeuvre around your site and install in more restrictive environments.
Kinder on Your Budget
Economically speaking, mini piles require less material to manufacture, less fuel to transport, and are easier to position and install. Each of these shaves some valuable savings off of your budget, making your project more economically friendly and profitable for your company!
Perfect for Underpinning
Underpinning – adding more foundational material to support existing foundations – is the perfect use for mini piles! Mini piles are often used to reinforce or repair pre-existing foundations due to the ease in installing them compared to full-sized piles.
Mini piles used less material and less fuel to manufacture, transport, and install! This means a lower carbon footprint for your project and an environmentally friendly construction. Not unlike the economic savings, you can shave a little off your carbon footprint at most stages in the production and installation of mini piles!
