Contiguous piling is a highly effective method of creating a retaining wall before excavations even begin. An ideal solution for earth retention where existing structures are close to site boundaries and excavations where ground water is present, piled walls and contigious piling create a temporary or permanent retaining structure enabling safe excavation to take place after installation of the piles.
Temporary or permanent and easily covered
Piled walls can use continuous flight auger methods to create closely spaced and reinforced concrete piles. Brick or masonry facing can be applied once the piles have cured and excavation has taken place to complete the finished structure.
Ideal for loose geology and water bearing strata
Contiguous piles are a cost effective and practical solution when dealing with problems such as ground water or very loose strata; they were one of the engineering solutions employed in New Orleans cleaning up after Hurricane Katrina.
Versatility in construction
We offer many piled retaining wall solutions, enabling us to always find a cost effective option. Whichever way the structure is formed the piles can be designed and installed as fixed cantilevers or to work with additional support from props or ground anchors as appropriate.
Specialist retaining structures from an expert team
Piled walls are created using CFA or rotary bored piling; a technique we have many years of experience in and can apply alongside other ground engineering requirements including traditional retaining walls, ground stabilisation and general piling requirements.
