Augered piles are generally used in conditions where driven piles are unsuitable i.e clay heave / shrinkage situations or where tensile loads are to be accommodated within the piles.
This system is particularly suited to contiguous piled walls.
Our rigs can also be adapted for down the hole hammer drilling to allow piles to be socketed into rock strata or for pre-drilling through obstructions.
Optima foundations also specilise in Odex piling system and hollow stem augering systems for more complex sites / ground conditions.
Our drilling rigs have been manufactured to suit our individual requirements and are particularly suited for working inside existing properties and restricted access site.
Our fleet of smaller rigs can even fit through a standard doorway and operate in low headroom situations.
