Driven Precast Concrete Piling

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.

What is a driven precast concrete pile?  Usually of square section, driven precast piles are produced in short lengths in one metre intervals between 3 and 14 metres. They are precast so that they can be easily connected together in order to reach their required length. This will not decrease the design load capacity. Reinforcement is necessary within the pile to help withstand both handling and driving stresses.

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. They are particularly useful where there is a need for very deep piles, typically up to 40 meters, in soft ground or in aggressive or contaminated soils.

The primary advantages of our 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 Group has built up a reputation for expertise and integrity when it comes to providing technically innovative solutions to civil engineering foundation problems.

Driven Piling Installation Method:

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, there is also no hazardous waste to dispose of.
