There are various clear advantages to driven cased piles. Firstly, driven cased piles are simple and economical to drive with an internal drop hammer or grundomat, there is less noise pollution and thin light, manageable casings can be used. They provide flexibility as piles can easily be cut or lengthened as casings can be supplied in any length and in a wide range of diameters and thickness. Casings are light but are rigid enough to be transported and handled without the precautions needed with precast concrete piles.
Steel-cased piles require minimal site preparation, virtually zero contractor attendance and produce no spoil keeping the job site tidy and site traffic to a minimum.
Driven cased piles are commonly used on sites where soft soils overlay more competent strata, permanently steel cased piles are driven with an internal drop hammer or grundomat to achieve a solid set depth. Suitable reinforcement is then added and the casing filled with concrete or grout.

I would just like to thank yourself for your rapid response to our situation we found ourselves in for the requirement for piling and the hard effort carried out by your work force in what can only be said as challenging weather conditions. Going forward we will now have a solid platform to proceed with the construction of our extension project.

Really impressed with your work Mark and massive credit to the lad who was on site, he was a definite asset to your company. Pleasant polite and helpful. Many thanks again for sorting it all out for me.

Small enough to Listen. Big enough to deliver.
No job too big. No job too small.
When we decided to setup Westbuild Piling we told ourselves “if we’re doing this we’re doing it properly, no silly mistakes, no messing people about, No that’ll do attitudes” And we meant it, we’re here to give people the service they deserve.
