Piling is probably one of the most essential parts of the whole building process because the pilings will be the support for the whole foundational structure of the house. The piling technique involves the insertion of a large amount of material, such as wood, steel, or concrete, into the soil, clay or other strata. This then forms the foundational base for any other supports or structure that the building is constructed upon. Bored piers are also used in retention systems for basement construction.
Careful and accurate surveying and geological sampling may be appropriate before any piling commences to ensure that the correct depths are reached, and sufficient amounts and appropriate types of materials are used. Whether you are a self-building homeowner or a construction company that builds multi-unit developments, you should talk to us about our competitively priced piling services before you start your project.
All of our piling and underpinning works are carried out to the highest industry codes and Australian-approved standards by experts in the field.

Professional bored piers in Melbourne
In instances where founding capacities may be an issue such as on new building sites with problem soils, ‘bored piers’ offer a viable solution. These instances may include engineer designed pier and beam footing systems, deep founding of stumping systems, and other such situations or as retention for excavations.
With our highly specialised boring rigs, we can provide the versatility required where space is at a premium or access may be restricted, such as in residential areas. Our equipment has been designed and purpose-built to reach sites with an entrance width as narrow as 700mm and heights of 3.5 metres. Boring capacities range from diameters of 200 – 1200mm, and our hole belling tools and tungsten core rock drills can reach depths of up to 9 metres.
