Contiguous Piling

Contiguous Piling Service in Sydney

Contiguous Piling is done to reinforce the building foundations where the load of the building above is transferred to the underneath. They can also act as retention walls when they are placed side by side. Contiguous Piling can be done through CFA, CSP and LDA methods. They are placed quite close to each other and there is not much space between them. Soil in between the gaps is grouted with concrete with a secondary lining upon it for the finishing. Eastside Piling is a family-owned business for 30 years now providing all kinds of piling services with complete reliability.
How Is Contiguous Piling Performed?

When performing any of the methods for contiguous piling, there are a certain set of steps followed. These steps are for one pile, and they are repeated for the other as well.

Positioning

Initially, the estimated centre of the pile is found using the wooden peg and the gap between the two piles is outlined.

Auguring

A borehole is formed using an instrument named Auger. The auger helps in cutting the ground from beneath through drilling. Soil is supported by the casing which surrounds the borehole. If the casing cannot support the borehole and falls short, bentonite slurry can be used as an assistance.

Steel Cage

When the hole is completely made we carry the steel cage to place it inside the borehole.

Concrete

The formation of a pore pile is the next stage which is done by pouring concrete in the hole after the steel cage is placed.
