There is literally nothing more essential to a building than its foundations. In very real terms, poor foundations can cost lives and money, and so it’s essential that new builds have professionally built foundations, and existing weak foundations are reinforced immediately. Due to the ever changing weather in Britain, many foundations become weak overtime, or are constructed in the wrong conditions and this is where experts in foundations Birmingham come into their own. There’s one specialist which offers a range of services in foundations and groundwork that are indispensible to a host of domestic and commercial clients.
In basic terms, piling is the method by which deep foundations are created. If surface soil is unsuitable for shallow foundations, or the building in question requires a more heavy duty foundation, then companies this can step in.
There are two main methods with differing benefits. The first involves drilling a shaft and then driving piles (made from reinforced concrete or steel) into them using various machines. The second forces the pile downward with no pre-drilling. A pile cap can then be used to distribute the weight of the proposed building over evenly over these piles.
