CFA Piling Contractors

The continuous flight auger piling technique is a frequently used foundation method involving drilling and concreting in a single continuous operation. In this method, a hollow auger is screwed into the ground up to the desired depth, and then concrete is filled into the newly formed cavity.

CFA piling is a technique that requires specialised skills and expertise to ensure a precise and long-lasting outcome. Southern Foundation Piling, a company with years of experience and a skilled engineering team, delivers the sturdiest foundations for your construction project.

With our latest piling equipment and rigs, we can easily access the hard-to-reach sites and ensure reliable installation of the CFA pile foundations. 

CFA Piling Common Uses

  • It is appropriate for various groundworks on gravel, clay, silt, and sand strata, as well as in areas with high groundwater tables.
  • CFA piling is a wise solution when site access is limited, and speed, minimum vibration, and noise impact are significant factors.
  • This technique is frequently used to build tunnels, bridges, and other bigger infrastructure projects, as well as to defend against flooding.
  • This drilling technique is widely used for multi-storey buildings and large structural foundations.

Process of the CFA Pile Installation

The whole process of CFA piling is monitored by our qualified engineers through a cutting-edge onboard computer. The computer system gives the operator feedback on important installation parameters like the depth of the auger and casing, the number of revolutions made by the auger, the stratum information, the drill pressure and torque, and the water strikes seen during the drilling phase.

  • A continuous hollow stemmed helical auger is rotated into the ground with the help of a piling rig to the required depths.
  • Then, concrete is pumped carefully through the stem while the auger is being withdrawn at the same time.
  • As the auger is pulled, the poured concrete hardens and keeps the pile stable.

FAQs

Continuous flight auger (CFA) piles are an efficient and affordable option that may be used for a variety of construction projects and ground conditions. This latest technique of piling is an excellent option for urban applications where noise levels must be reduced to a minimum.

Compared to other piling techniques, it requires less time and effort, and because only one auger is required, it saves you equipment and labour costs. Moreover, it is a versatile piling option because it can be employed in a variety of soil types and situations.

CFA piles are capable of going through rock strata and are suitable for all soil conditions, including clay, dense sand, and low-grade rocks.
