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.

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.
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.
Our bored piers are ideal for many applications, including:
