We strive to provide excellent service, specialist workmanship, along with an excellent end product to suit your building projects needs and requirements. A brief run down of everything involved in CFA piling is:

  • Drilling a full length auger with a hollow stem into the soil using a constant penetration and vibration rate.
  • After reaching the design level, concrete is pumped through the hollow stem of the auger while the auger is extracted. All the time keeping the auger embedded in the concrete.
  • Positive concrete pressure needs to be maintained throughout the placement of concrete. CFA piles have to be poured to platform level to ensure the correct reinforcement installation and avoid pile necking.
  • After completion of the concrete placement process the reinforcement cage is plunged into the fluid concrete.
