What is micro-piling?

Micropiles are small diameter piles often used in restricted-access settings. Installation involves advancing casing to the required depth, and then the spoil is removed via various drilling techniques. Reinforcing steel is introduced to the casing, and the ground is pumped, often under high pressure, to fill the casing. The casing can either be left in place or extracted depending on the design requirements.

Typical Uses
  • Installing piles in restricted access environments
  • Underpinning of existing foundations as ground anchors
Key Advantages
  • Ideal for low access situations
  • Quick and efficient installation
  • Suitable for a range of ground conditions
  • High capacity piles and anchors
Applications Include
  • Commercial building foundations
  • Residential buildings
  • Retaining walls
