The Three Stages of Piling

The first pile casing driven is called a ‘starter’. Starters are crimped at the end so they can penetrate the ground
1. Piles are driven

Following excavation, we drive steel pile casings into the ground guided by a layout drawing, until they achieve the load capacity required by the structural engineer.

We pre-fabricate our steel cages in-house and cut them to size as necessary, saving time and labour on-site.
2. Ground beam is installed

Once the pile casings are in place, we cut them to the correct height and overlay pre-fabricated steel cages. We then drop steel bars into the pile casings and connect them to the cages for maximum strength. Once the assembly is complete, it is inspected and passed by a building control officer before the concrete is laid.

We use a concrete poker to remove air and water from the pile casings, which prevents sink holes
3. Concrete is poured and levelled

We pour concrete into the trench, filling the pile casings and covering the cages. This completes your piled foundation. We ensure the concrete is level and hand the project back to the contractor to commence building work.

Alex Thomson, Homeowner

Rhino were brilliant from the very first point of contact right the way through till the job was complete. Communication was great, all calls and emails answered and responded-to right away. David and Jonathan went out of their way to make the process as smooth as possible. The turnaround time was remarkable, they were on-site within a few days. The job itself was smooth, quick, and the lads were great. They followed up after to make sure everything was to plan. Myself and my builder will definitely both recommend them again to anyone.

Just Brilliant !!!
We hit made up ground on our 4m x 7m Extension and looked like we were in for deep footings. Building control mentioned piling the ground and that it would be best for us. I called Rhino that morning and they came out the same day. The explanation of what they would do was really good. They came the following day to start the job. The lads were spot on and the following day the concrete was poured !!! Amazing quick and efficient service. 100% recommend

Sue Rivett, Homeowner

When digging the foundation for a side extension where the garage had been, we encountered storm drains (yet another problem with the house!). Rhino assessed what could be done, quoted for piling that day, the structural engineer sent plans (for building control), and the team started and completed the work within a day, 2 days later. Beautiful foundations laid (‘too good to build on’ said our builder!). Friendly and super-efficient service with a smile, outstanding work, and they won’t keep you waiting. I can’t rate them highly enough! Thank you, Rhino Piling team!
