CFA Piles

Continuous Flight Auger (CFA)

Specialist Piling contractor Aarsleff Ground Engineering has the capability to offer its clients Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) piles for projects that require minimal vibration and noise piling methods. Utilising the latest machinery and pile technology, Aarsleff’s design capabilities create bespoke solutions that add value to your project.

This method of piling involves drilling a contiguous flight auger into the ground. The auger holds the soil surrounding the hole, eliminating the need for temporary casings and support fluids. Once the desired depth has been met, the concrete mix is pumped through the hallow stem whilst it is being retracting out the ground.

The advantages to CFA piling include:

  • Minimal vibration and noise produced whilst piling
  • Suitable for a wide range of challenging ground conditions
  • There is no requirement for a casing when piling, reducing cost and time
  • Fully monitored pile production
  • Fast and economical piling method
  • Piling can be done in close proximity to other structures and buildings

The CFA piling method can also be used in the installation of Contiguous Pile Walls and Secant Pile Walls.
