Bearing Piles

A bearing pile is a column to transmit the load of the building through a layer of soil too weak to take the load to a stronger layer of soil some distance underground; the pile acts as a column to carry the load down to the bearing stratum using a combination of shaft friction and end bearing. Bearing piles are usually categorised into two general types: –

  • Displacement/Driven Piles
  • Bored Cast Insitu Pile

GSS Piling can offer pile diameters of between 250mm to 600mm diameter within restricted access/headroom and within close proximity to existing structures. The systems we can offer are either open bored, bored temporary cased or CFA (continuous flight auger) concrete or grout injected piles.
