Significance of Mini Piling

Mini piling is one of the most effective techniques in construction. It provides a solid basis for a building to withstand time. It has been applicable throughout the world for years, and still, in this modern era, its importance has not waned.

Technically, it is an advancement or a variation of piling – the process of giving firm foundations to a building to make it a durable one. It differs from standard piling. Standard piling consists of robust frames of large diameter while mini piling considerably uses narrow-diameter piles. This type of piling is easy and economical. Yet it can effectively serve the purpose of strengthening a structure.

How Mini Piling Works

To carry out this process, mini piling foundation specialists typically use a steel shaft. They drill the shaft to the required depth into the ground. Afterwards, concrete is poured in to form the pile. During this process, the role of the steel shaft remains quite significant. It supports the soil and maintains the shape of the pile. This becomes considerably important where the soil is comparatively weak.

Right now, there is a huge demand for different building designs. All these buildings vary in volume, geometry, and size. Therefore, our mini piling specialists cannot rely on only one type of piling. They opt for the most suitable type that can serve the purpose appropriately.  Considering this, below are some types of mini piling that are generally applied.

Types of Mini Piling

Grundomat Driven Mini Piling

This type of mini piling is an air-driven piling. It is particularly feasible when space or area for piling is limited and one has to reduce noise within the building. For example, when there is a need to build a house extension, grundomat driven mini piling appears to be beneficial.

Drop Hammer Mini Piling

A mini piling company can go for drop hammer mini piling when there is a handful of headroom available on the construction site. For instance, mini piling contractors choose this piling to offer their mini piling services for housing developments.

Mini Piling Benefits

Perfect for small spaces

As apparent from the name, mini piling is quite suitable for construction projects where the available space is restricted. It uses small shafts that are easily installed in small areas without causing any harm to the building structure.


Unlike conventional piling, which requires a lot of capital and labour, this type of piling is very much economical. So, when it comes to mini piling cost, one must not be so much worried.

Safety guaranteed

Whenever there is piling going on at a site, the safety of nearby structures becomes the very concern of the specialists. If piling is not carried out with protocols, it may damage a nearby building. Luckily, with the help of mini piling, the chances of damage to the surrounding structures are ruled out. 

As the screws of mini-piling are small in diameter, mini-piling becomes a fantastic option for sites having sensitive soil. Last, but not the least, mini-piling produces less noise, thus saving people from noise pollution.

Easy to install

As earlier stated, mini piling requires small screws, so it is very easy to install it on any construction site.  Mini piling does not demand a specific time for concrete to settle down. Also, there is not much excavation done when it comes to mini piling. This saves you time, money, and energy.


Although mini piles are smaller in diameter, yet they are strong enough to support a structure evenly. They are buried deep down in the soil offering greater strength to a building.

Mini piling is a variant of conventional piling. It uses narrow piles that are easier to install and transport, yet they offer significant strength to a structure.

Heave effect arises when the soil beneath a structure expands as a result of excessive moisture. Mini piles are designed properly to go deep in the soil and they remain steady in heave conditions.
