When building any structure, underpinning ensures the building is securely supported. Screw piling or bored piers are a highly cost effective option for various properties and can underpin both new and existing structures, including foundation repairs.
Techniblock is pleased to offer our clients screw piling services, an easy-to-install alternative to conventional bore holes that may collapse due to ground water issues or fine and sandy soils.
From large scale commercial complexes to small shop fronts and mini-malls, we can install highly supportive bored piers for new and existing properties. Commercial properties may have different requirements to residential properties but will nonetheless need supportive structures to maintain the weight of ground floor and multi-properties. We can also help with underground excavation for storage purposes.
If you have a new property or want to excavate in an existing property we can offer the foundational support to maintain new structures. This is especially critical if you are building a basement on an existing house. We have a wealth of experience working on houses and complexes looking to expand. It’s also a safety measure if the existing ground and soil doesn’t appear strong enough to support the development, so may be required depending on where you are building. If you are looking to increase the value of your property and expand on the available space, Techniblock can help.
We like to build strong partnerships with all of our clients, ensuring all projects are completed with care and attention. Once you have outlined your installation needs we will establish an appropriate quote. We want to help you complete your project effectively and efficiently.
Frequently asked questions
What are the benefits of screw piling? Screw piling is a more cost effective option and can underpin both new and existing structures. The process can be used in eco-sensitive sites and are fairly easy to install. Its easy installation also means it does not disrupt the soil as much as other processes and thus is a preferred option for many commercial and residential properties.
Are steel piers better than concrete? Steel piers are recommended for large or heavy developments that may be built on top of soil or sand that might not be suitable for traditional processes. Generally speaking they are a much more convenient process, however concrete may be necessary in areas with deep sand along seacoasts.
How do you repair foundations? Sunken concrete and cracks in foundations can potentially be detrimental to the integrity of your property and the safety of inhabitants. When repairing foundations you will want to get a repair expert to take a look at your property, before having a structural engineer investigate the site. Piering can then be inserted into unstable soil to either raise or stabilise existing foundations. However, the repair method will be determined by the condition and the type of structure being worked on.
