/ Company Activity
Deep foundation contractors are experienced at designing and building hard/soft and hard/firm secant walls using continuous flight augur or bored piles techniques or segmental casings for applications of various pile diameters upwards.
The development of powerful high das led to an increase in the range of
ground conditions and obstructions that can be penetrated and the wall
thickness that can be constructed. We can install secant walls in the most
Where soils are saturated and water tightness is a required secant materials (soft) or weaker concrete (firm) are used in combination with reinforced concrete (hard) piles. These alternatives are generally used where temporary works are required. Permanent are retention can be provided with all reinforced piles (hard/hard) which can be incorporated within the final structure. Piles in a secant wall are spaced at 0.8 to 0.9 pile diameters. Primary piles are secanted by secondary piles, thus providing a closed structure to act as a barrier in water bearing soils, and to prevent the ingress of soil between the piles.
Secant piling offers minimal vibration and low noise levels and the flexibility to fit complex site boundaries, maximizing land use. Secant piling also can go through underground obstructions such as steel,heavily reinforced concrete,granite and masonry while at the same time avoiding any risk of construction induced settlements to neighboring structures.

The duration to execute piling for a high-rise building can depend on various factors associated with the project. These factors include the size and complexity of the building, the number of piles needed, the characteristics of the soil at the site, the chosen piling method, and the overall project schedule.
The piling process involves several sequential steps, including site preparation, setting up piling rigs and
equipment, conducting soil investigations, installing piles, and verifying their integrity. Each of these steps requires careful planning and execution to ensure the stability and structural integrity of the building.
The time required to complete the piling phase depends on the number and type of piles needed to support the high-rise structure adequately. Large-scale projects may require more time due to the increased number of piles and the complexity of the piling operation. Additionally, challenging soil conditions, such as rock formations or soft soils, may require additional time for specialized piling techniques or ground
On average, the piling phase for a high-rise building can take several weeks to several months to complete. This estimation includes activities such as mobilization, site preparation, conducting necessary tests, driving or installing piles, and performing quality control checks.
It's important to note that each project is unique, and the piling duration can vary significantly depending
on project-specific factors. Engaging experienced geotechnical engineers, piling contractors, and construction professionals can help develop a detailed project plan and provide a more accurate
estimation of the piling duration based on the specific requirements of the high-rise building.
Efficient project management, adherence to safety protocols, and effective coordination between various stakeholders are crucial in ensuring the timely and successful execution of the piling phase for a high-rise construction project.
When it comes to quality assurance in piling and earthworks with construction, several tests are commonly performed to ensure the integrity and stability of the structures. Here are some key tests that are typically conducted:
Soil Investigation: This involves collecting soil samples from the construction site and performing various laboratory tests to determine its composition, bearing capacity, and other relevant properties. This
information helps in designing suitable foundations and assessing the suitability of the soil for piling and earthworks.
Geotechnical Testing: These tests evaluate the physical and mechanical properties of the soil formations, such as density, compaction, permeability, shear strength, and consolidation characteristics. The results
aid in determining the appropriate construction techniques, materials, and design parameters.
Pile Integrity Testing: This test is conducted to verify the integrity and load-bearing capacity of installed piles. It helps in identifying any potential defects, such as cracks, voids, or structural irregularities in the piles, which could compromise their performance and stability.
Load Testing: Load tests are performed on completed piles to assess their load-carrying capacity and ensure they meet the design requirements. This involves subjecting the piles to incremental loads and
monitoring their settlement and behavior under different load conditions.
Cross hole Sonic Test: This is a valuable technique in geotechnical engineering, enabling the assessment
of the integrity and quality of cast-in-place concrete piles by analyzing the propagation of sonic waves within the pile cross-sections.
Field Density Testing: This test measures the in-situ density of compacted earthworks or backfill
materials. It ensures that proper compaction techniques have been employed, which is crucial for achieving the desired stability, settlement control, and load-bearing capacity of the constructed structures.
Slope Stability Analysis: This assessment is carried out to evaluate the stability of excavations, embankments, or slopes in earthworks. It involves analyzing factors such as soil properties, groundwater conditions, and the slope geometry to determine the safety and potential risks of slope failure.
Quality Control of Materials: Various construction materials, such as concrete, aggregates, and reinforcing steel, undergo quality control tests to ensure they meet the required specifications and
standards. These tests involve assessing properties like strength, durability, and dimensional accuracy.
The mobilization time for piling and earthworks with construction can vary based on the specific project
requirements. Upon receiving the necessary approvals and agreements, we strive to mobilize to the site as
quickly and efficiently as possible. The exact timeline for mobilization depends on factors such as the project size, complexity, and logistical considerations.
Before mobilizing to the site, certain preparatory steps need to be undertaken. These may include conducting site visits and surveys, procuring necessary permits and approvals, coordinating with
subcontractors and suppliers, mobilizing equipment and machinery, and establishing safety protocols.
Typically, smaller projects with simpler requirements and readily available resources can be mobilized
within a shorter timeframe, often ranging from a few days to a couple of weeks.
However, larger and more complex projects may require a longer mobilization period, ranging from a few weeks to several months.
It's important to note that while expedited mobilization is desirable, it is equally crucial to ensure
thorough planning and preparation to maintain the highest standards of safety, quality, and efficiency
throughout the construction process. By striking the right balance, we can optimize the mobilization time
while adhering to project-specific requirements and industry best practices.
