Mini Piling is a quick, cost-effective solution to the majority of groundwork and foundation problems.
What Is Mini Piling?
Piling is required when the ground area for an extension or build is not strong enough to hold the weight of the new structure. By drilling mini piles into the area, Basetec Piling can provide a strong, stable foundation for your building project.

The Mini Piling Process
We follow a traditional piling method, including the below steps:
Usually, foundation trenches will be dug by your builder. However, if not, we are happy to dig the foundation trench.
This trench provides space for the mini piles.
Installing The Mini Piles
Following the designs of our structural engineer, we will then install the mini piles and drive them to “set”. Essentially, this entails driving the piles through the ground until they cannot be go any lower.
Securing The Structure
Following the installation of mini piles, we then place shutters around the side and bottom of the excavation. This forms a neat, solid structure for the concrete.
Cutting The Mini Piles
We then cut the mini piles to the required height. Following this, we place reinforced steel beams on top and tie them securely to the original bars.
At this stage, we will contact the building inspector. He will look at the structural engineers drawings and check the piles and beams are installed in agreement with these.
Once we have approval from the building inspector, we will pour concrete over the piles and beams.
Our engineers will complete the mini piling in a few working days. We issue our clients and the building inspector with the structural calculations and a piling log.
You can now carry on with your building project, assured your foundation work has been carried out to the highest possible standard.
