Our client contacted us regarding some foundation work for their new single storey rear extension at their home. They had started the works for the extension and discovered that the ground was not suitable to support it. Firstly, we arranged to visit site to discuss the works with the client. We agreed that a piling foundation scheme would best suit this project and confirmed a price for the works with the client. The works were booked in for the following week.
On our first day on site, we began by installing our piling foundation scheme, as per our structural engineers design. The builder on site had previously dug out the trenches for the foundation. Our piling scheme involved steel cased top driven piles and beams. Once fully installed, we arranged for the local building inspector to visit site and assess the works. He was happy that our piling works would support the new foundations structure and as a result passed the works. This allowed us to begin the concreting stage the following morning.
Overall, it took a total of three working days to complete the works. On completion, we provided our client with copies of the structural engineers design (calculations) and our piling log detailing the depth that each pile went too.
In conclusion, our client was pleased with the high standard and efficiency of our work. They are looking forward to the building works starting on their new home extension.
Below are some images from the works, showing our piling scheme before and after concreting;
