Piling and underpinning foundations

Carnon Contracting can undertake traditional and micro-piling in a variety of different site locations and conditions.

Most of this type of work is to either secure properties at risk of or suffering from subsidence or land slip and to facilitate the development of new infrastructure or commercial/residential properties. We have a fleet of 5no. drill rigs and 4no. excavator mountable drill masts varying in size and capability to cover all site types and pile diameter/depths. Please ring for advice if further information is needed about our rig fleet and capability. We are also able to advise and assist with the temporary works requirements to access restricted sites for the required work to be carried out.

Steel-cased mini-piling and traditional piles are used for transferring foundation support to a firm underlying strata. This is ideally suited to filled or contaminated ground and soft or water-bearing subsoils. These systems provide an economic and reliable solution.

Piling and mini-piling are common choices for new build/underpinning schemes. The above systems are particularly suitable for use in Devon and Cornwall.

Piles are installed using one or more of our specialist rig fleet by our trained, experienced and skilled workforce. On completion of the piling phase of a residential/commercial building project we are also able to carry on and install ground beams and drainage works to DPC level allowing continuity of work on site and eliminating the need to appoint multiple contractors.

Our clients for this type of work include private house owners, developers, engineers, surveyor’s, loss adjusters, local authorities and both small and large contractors.

Carnon Contracting’s clients include Cormac, Midas Construction, Kier, Morcom, EBC Ltd, Fugro, Brady Construction Services, as well as smaller construction companies/builders and private individuals.
