Driven precast concrete piles generate no spoil or arisings from the installation and remove the need for additional traffic movements in and out of the site. On urban brownfield sites in particular, there is also no hazardous waste to dispose of.
Over many years the Aarsleff team have built up a reputation for expertise and integrity when it comes to providing technically innovative solutions to civil engineering foundation problems.
Areas of involvement include road construction, water treatment facilities, canals, coastal protection and major rail projects like the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, where Aarsleff manufactured and installed hundreds of 600 mm square section precast concrete piles, the only project of its type in Europe.
Our engineers welcome the chance to work with project designers from early stages to ensure a value engineered option incorporating optimal performance to meet design load demands and programme.
In 1965, Aarsleff A/S established a partnership with Centrum Pæle A/S – which is today one of our subsidiaries – to boost the production method of precast concrete piles. Before the partnership, almost all foundation piles were cast on site in the exact lengths and dimensions required for the project. Today, we precast reinforced concrete piles at our sister manufacturing facility in Nottinghamshire UK, Centrum Pile. In this way, we are very flexible and able to deliver from day to day.
