SOLWAY GROUND IMPROVEMENTS - PILING
Solway Ground Improvements offer a range of Piling sertvices for the installation of foundation-bearing piles for large structures and buildings. Our piling services include:
Rotary Bore Piling (LDA)
Contiguous & Secant Piling
Contiguous walls are commonly and mainly used for holding back soil so an area can be excavated. They are constructed with small spaces between adjacent piles where the size of this space is determined by the nature and condition of the soil itself. Secant pile walls are an innovative way to build retaining walls. They are formed by a series of interlocking drilled shafts and are used primarily where there is a high water table or unsuitable ground conditions. Secant pile walls are attractive near buildings, roads and other sensitive structures because of the lack of noise and vibration during the construction. Secant walls can be used to form a continuous watertight walls – an added benefit on environmental projects .
Secant Piling is used to build concrete retaining walls often utilising for basement construction and flood defences. There are various difference methods including hard/soft secant piling and hard/firm secant piling. Eco Foundations generally only install hard secant walls as this method is the only truly waterproof system available in today marketplace.
