The Need For Good Quality Foundations For Infrastructure Projects

screw piling

Foundations play an extremely important role when considering the structural integrity of any infrastructure projects. This is why it is extremely important to make sure that any foundation solution that is being designed for a particular infrastructure project is carried out by a professional contractor who has the necessary knowledge and tools to make sure that the foundation is constructed in a way that it is specified in. Failure to do so can result in premature collapse of the entire building structure which can result in large amounts of financial losses as well as the loss of human life. Piling systems are gaining popularity because of the flexibility that is associated with having deep foundations such as those provided by screw piling.

Deep Foundations Provided by Pile Systems

Piles are essentially extremely deep foundations which resist vertical and horizontal loads that are applied on them through the bending resistance in the pile as well as the shaft and end bearing capacity of the pile system. It is not advisable to design piles to take horizontal flow through bending as that is an extremely in efficient way to transfer the load from the superstructure to the substructure that is, the foundations. Many different kinds of piling techniques exist and the suitability of each technique is subject to the specific ground conditions as well as the neighbouring environment that is present for a particular infrastructure project. Sometimes, there is the need for in situ piles which means that the pile needs to be cast in place, while in other cases, there is a need for a driven file which means that the pile will be constructed of site and will be transported to the site where it will be hammered into the ground. Screw piling provides an easy solution when it comes to creating in situ piles as the equipment that is used to create these files is extremely quick and large amount of piles can be made in a relatively short period of time.

At ground control management we are aware of the importance of having good quality piling systems for a particular infrastructure project which is why we provide specialised services when it comes to screw piling. we have specialist equipment available for different screw piling jobs and we have a large amount of experience when it comes to creating different screw piles for various infrastructure projects. Ultimately this means that you can rely on us to ensure that the piling system for your particular infrastructure project will be completed to the highest standards while adhering to the building laws that are present in that particular area.
