Steel Bearing Piles

About Steel Bearing Piles

Steel bearing piles could be the solution for your project. With over 30 years of experience in the UK, piling contractor Aarsleff Ground Engineering offer steel bearing piles to its clients. These recycled oil & gas drilling cases are high grade thick wall steel tubes for sites with minor obstructions and/or sites with vibration issues for surrounding structures. Ranging from 140-339mm, Driven Steel piles are manufactured of a high grade of steel that lends itself very well to being driven into the ground for bearing piles. The piles are robust and can withstand high driving stresses which assists with overcoming very dense bands or obstructions.

Advantages of Steel Bearing Piles

The main advantages of using steel bearing piles are:

  • They can be mixed and matched with our precast concrete piles for a commercially beneficial solution
  • Suitable for uncertain ground conditions
  • They can be driven deeper than precast piles to depths of 50 meters or more
  • They are easy to adapt for unforeseen soil conditions, along with being able to be driven through small obstructions and hard ground conditions
  • They can be driven using minimal vibration driving methods.
  • Fast construction allows for immediate follow on work to begin meaning no delays to site activities
  • No spoil arisings from installation, particularly important on ‘brown field’ or contaminated sites.
  • No over design as the individual pile sizes are dictated by the load capacity required and not by the machinery employed

Carbon Savings

97% of our carbon emissions lie within scope 3, our supply chain, which is why we understand the importance of working with providers who share the same goals. All our steel tubes are sourced from John Lawrie Tubulars. John Lawrie’s Life Cycle Assessment demonstrated that their repurposed tubulars save 97.21% of embodied carbon per tonne when compared with a newly manufactured prime steel product. They were awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Sustainable Development last April. By working with them over the past 12 months, Aarsleff have contributed to a saving of 5,010.66 tonnes of C02e. Working with Aarsleff Ground Engineering as your piling contractor creates value for every element of your project.
