There are many factors that can contribute to the failing of an existing foundation such as moisture changes in the soil, a lack of suitable materials during the installation phase and even trees that are located too close to the property. Here at Rhino Piling, we always abide by the rules and regulations of our industry in order to provide each and every client with a deep foundation that can withstand the test of time. With this said, man-made structures aren’t invincible and regular upkeep is crucial to this longevity guarantee.
It is often thought that an existing foundation cannot be saved, but new and improved technology is changing the game and how we approach these types of projects. Mini-piling is a foundational technique that uses the same principles as traditional piling whilst swapping out the large, bulky piles for ones with a narrower diameter. This allows for work to be carried out in situations that would otherwise be deemed unsuitable for deep foundations in the past.
There are a variety of benefits that can be obtained from an investment in mini-piling, such as:
- Restricted Headroom Access: Mini-piling can be safely carried out inside existing builds because the rigs are significantly smaller and therefore easier to transport.
- Low Vibrations: The installation process is more eco-friendly and creates minimal disturbance in the soil. This means that it can be applied within close proximity to nearby structures and foundations.
- Affordability: Often thought to be a specialized technique, mini-piling is quite versatile and can be adapted in order to suit the budget of the client accordingly.
