We are expert in Contiguous Piling for retaining walls for new basements as well as piled new foundations, piled underpinning and traditional underpinning of existing buildings.
Purkelly provide a specialist design and build service for the construction of piled retaining walls for new basements.
A contiguous piled wall is formed from closely spaced bored piles for the construction of basements.
This specialist service is available to builders, main contractors, professional advisors and also directly to home owners.
A piled retaining wall allows excavation of the basement to proceed safely and efficiently and minimises the need for temporary propping. The walls can also be utilised to support vertical loads, such as the external walls of a domestic property.
We have successfully completed numerous contiguous piled retaining wall schemes for single and double-storey basement construction in central London utilising 350mm diameter piles to depths of up to 20m.
Our piling rigs are operated by experienced foremen who ensure that the project is completed without any unnecessary delays, and our crews are appropriately trained and qualified.
Purkelly’s system of working and our piling rig equipment make us the ideal partner for sites where access is limited in either headroom or width.
