Plunge Post Piles
Plunge post piles are typically bored cast insitu piles with individual plunged I/H sections into a reinforcement cage whereby the pile is cast to the top of the reinforcement cage leaving the plunge section projecting free of concrete thereafter. This system is typically used for ‘top down’ method of basement construction.
The advantage of this system is to facilitate multi-tier top down construction whereby the plunge post can be post clad in the permanent works or alternatively removed once permanent columns have been cast. It also enables the cast insitu concrete of the pile to act as temporary works support for the lower basement slab whilst still maintaining the support to the basement slab.(Refer to picture/diagram)
