They chose the Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) piling system to deliver a sturdy, durable foundation that will stand up to future occupants of the beautiful new homes they were building for Avicam Homes.

Mini Piling, also referred to as Micro Piling or Small Diameter Piling, is an innovative solution for a variety of construction projects. It is commonly used to create foundations for highway, bridge and transmission tower projects.
There are several different types of mini piles available, all of which are suitable for a range of ground conditions. The most common type is a hollow steel shaft, which is screwed or drilled into the ground and topped with grout or concrete.
Alternatively, sectional auger mini piles can be used especially where there is limited headroom. These piles involve boring down and totaling manifold aircraft units as the bore progresses, which can then either be removed or left in place while pouring concrete into them.
Aarsleff Ground Engineering has a wide fleet of rigs which can work on mini piling jobs, including their smallest rig which is so compact it can enter through a 3.3ft door. This makes it ideal for getting in to restricted access sites.
