A bored pile is a type of reinforced-concrete foundation that supports structures with heavy vertical loads.
Bored piers and bored piles are a common type for foundation for many properties including residential, retail, industrial, commercial properties, industrial complexes and bridge works. High rise structures that require heavy vertical load support most often need bored piers.
Installing a bored pile starts with drilling a vertical hole into the soil, using a bored piling machine. Our rigs can drill to a depth of up to 26 meters and a diameter of up to 1.5 meters.
Once the hole is drilled, a reinforced steel cage is lowered into the hole, then the hole is filled with concrete. The top of the pile may be capped with a footing or pier near ground level to support the structure above.
The base of the piers are founded onto good bearing soil at the appropriate depth. If the bearing capacity of the soil is low, the depth of the pier can be increased. This is to give adequate support to the structure and spread the forces over a greater bearing area.
