The company was set up in 2001 by Robert Hamilton and Ian Bogie two well known and experienced figures in the local piling industry.
They identified a need in the industry at that time for a local company offering mini piling services many of which were only available from across the water. The Company offers solutions to difficult ground conditions as detailed below.
The mini piling solutions offered are ideal for foundation problems : -
In limited access locations such as house extensions and conservatories where spoil excavation and removal would be both difficult and expensive;
In built up areas where noise and vibration are a consideration and are particularly cost effective when compared to conventional systems;
In limited headroom locations within buildings for alterations to existing structures or for new work such as lift pits, machine bases etc.
In all small piling contracts such as foundations for a single house where the cost of mobilizing large equipment and the cost of the site preparation required would be prohibitive.
The Underpinning solutions available include a number of tried and tested systems incorporating mini-piles and reinforced concrete beams or slabs, some which can be carried out entirely from outside the existing building minimizing disruption and therefore cost.
Settlement or subsidence problems tend to be specific to a particular property so the underpinning solutions we propose are individually designed to suit. The underpinning techniques can be used for the stabilization of failing foundations or for the upgrading of foundations or slabs to allow increased capacity for a change of use.
