The process of choosing a reliable construction company to work on the foundation of your property can often be difficult. After all, the last thing any homeowner wants to do is invest time and money into workers who aren’t able to meet the demands they said they would. Here at Rhino Piling, our team has over 100 years combined experience in both construction and piling and we continue to develop our skills and knowledge every single day. As part of our satisfaction guarantee, we always carry out an on-site evaluation during the initial planning stages of the piling process and this helps us ascertain the most appropriate piling method for the needs of your projects.
It is during this inspection where we may recommend a method called mini piling, a foundational solution in its own right that has been adapted for specialist projects where traditional piling has been deemed unsuitable. Mini-piles are characterised by their smaller diameter which makes them much easier to manufacture, transport and install; this means that the process can be applied in order to reinforce existing foundations where headroom may be restricted or there are nearby foundations that cannot be disturbed.
Contrary to belief, mini-piling is applied in the exact same way as traditional piling which means that it offers the same strength and stability at a fraction of the cost. During the process, our contractors will position the mini piles at equal distances in order to distribute the weight of the structure above equally and create multiple points of strength that will provide longevity for the foreseeable future.
There are many different mini-piling methods that can be utilised depending on the specific needs of a project, such as:
- Open Hole Auger
- Top Driven Steel/ Precast
- Sectional Auger
- Contiguous Piled Wall
- Drill Bar Pile
Mini-piling is the number one foundational solution on the market and the smaller stature of the driving rig makes it perfect for working on existing foundations. To find out how we can help, get in contact with the mini piling experts at Rhino Piling today!
