Grundomat new technique

Aarsleff Ground Engineering is excited to expand its mini piling offerings with the addition of Grundomat Piling.

The Grundomat method is an air-driven piling system, which uses compressed air to drive the piles. The compressed air can be supplied from outside the restricted area, making this method extremely mobile. The technique does not require large piling machinery or a piling matt, and generates minimal vibration, making it the ideal pile type for restricted access sites or underground areas requiring foundations.

Grundomat piling uses steel tubes ranging from 100mm to 150mm diameter which is driven until a determined set has been reached. Extra steel tube sections can be welded together as required, and once in place, the steel tubes are reinforced and filled with grout or concrete.

Grundomat Piling in Woking

Aarsleff Ground Engineering’s first Grundomat piling project was for an extension on a Premier Inn in Woking. Contracted by G Oakley & Sons, Aarsleff’s specialist mini piling team installed 14 No. 100mm steel diameter piles to depths of 3.5m to 4m, using the hand-held piling technique.

Aarsleff employed the Grundomat piling technique on this scheme due to the existing tree canopies which had a tree preservation order in place. The piles for this project were lightly loaded at 75kN, which makes this method an ideal solution for restricted access sites and small house extensions.

With the addition of Grundomat Piling to its Mini Piling capabilities, Aarsleff can now provide a full range of different techniques of piling, including Sectional Flight Auger (SFA), Bottom Driven Steel Tube & Augered Mini Piles.
