Aarsleff Ground Engineering offer driven precast concrete piles to its clients. We manufacture all our 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. The precast concrete piles generate no spoil or arising 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.
Precast concrete piles are installed in the ground by using pile driving equipment. Due to the possibility of carrying vertical and horizontal loads as well as bending moments, precast piles are used for the foundation of all sorts of engineering structures under virtually every soil conditions. Piles can be a single section, or several sections can be jointed to provide longer piles for deeper ground conditions.
Driven precast concrete piles generate no spoil or arising’s from the installation and removes the need for additional traffic movements in and out of the site. Piles can be provided in various sizes, formed in high strength concrete, with varying reinforcement.
The primary advantages of our precast pile technology includes a relatively short time of installation, high quality of the product, possibilities to carry out work in low air temperatures and driving piles at a rake as well as a full control of pile bearing capacities.

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.
