We are catered towards the domestic and commercial clients, We have great teams of piling & Underpinning contractors who are all in house trained and employed by our company and do not source outside contractors to take on work under our name. Our teams cover all over the south of the Uk and we have a wide variety of piling machines to undertake almost any job. We can undertake all of the associated ground works which go with piling so we can do the ground beams or your Rc raft ready for the builder to build straight on. We can also undertake full designs with our structural design team or work with your structural engineer always with a cost effective and practical method in mind. We like to offer a transparent service with no hidden or nasty extras at the end of our service and pride ourselves on being fair and honest to all of our clients.

Contiguous Pile Wall

Technology has facilitated our lives in every way imaginable. What seemed impossible a few decades ago has become a reality in this era. Contiguous piled walls are among these wonders that have opened limitless opportunities for us. Bestowing the ability to construct heavy structures in the most unstable soil and environmental conditions, they have allowed us to explore new possibilities in the construction realm. However, they require highly specialised hands and a precise approach to reap its benefits and ensure the safety of the structure.

Southern Foundations & Piling is a renowned company that has been constructing contiguous piled walls for over 18 years. Our engineers are the experts, fully equipped to construct contiguous retaining walls with stark precision.

How Do We Carry It Out?

  1. A site survey is conducted to assess the soil conditions, project requirements and clients’ expectations to design a bespoke piles solution for the project.
  2. The piling technique is selected based on the site conditions and pile design. We can execute different piling techniques, such as CFA piling and rotary bored piling, to install contiguous piled walls.
  3. Drilling and concreting are carried out using the selected piling technique and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure precise execution.
  4. Pile cage reinforcement is installed to provide tensile strength against lateral and bending forces, and the pile is allowed to achieve its design strength through setting and curing.
  5. Capping beams are installed to ensure all the piles act as monolithic structures against the lateral forces exerted by the neighbouring soil.

Versatile Applications of Contiguous Piled Walls

Contiguous piled retaining walls find their applications in a number of commercial and domestic settings. They are generally used in urban environments with closely spaced buildings. Their applications also include coastal areas with loose soil.

Our engineers are equipped with the latest piling equipment and can install contiguous piled walls under every condition. Below are some of the most common applications of contiguous piled walls:

  • Construction of cellars or basements
  • Excavation support
  • Slope stabilisation
  • Inserting substructures
  • Bridge abutment
  • Embankment cuttings

Benefits of Contiguous Piled Walls Construction

  • Constructing contiguous pile walls is simpler during load variations, eliminating the need for a guide wall and allowing for construction flexibility.
  • These walls offer a cost-effective solution compared to diaphragm walls, enhancing their economic viability for specific projects.
  • Contiguous pile walls can adapt to more varied geometry than diaphragm walls, providing versatility in design.
  • They boast a high load-bearing capacity, ensuring stability and safety for both excavations and structures.
  • Contiguous pile walls can be installed in challenging ground conditions, making them suitable for a wide array of projects.
  • In high-priced metropolitan areas, contiguous pile walls present an efficient solution for deep excavations.
  • They are well-suited for densely populated urban areas where traditional retaining methods might encroach on neighbouring properties, offering a space-efficient solution.
  • Contiguous pile walls are suitable for sites with existing footings of adjacent buildings and underground utilities, providing excavation support without disturbing surrounding structures.
