Cast In Place Piles

Cast in place piles are a method that involves drilling a circular hole into the ground, installing steel reinforcement and filling the hole with concrete to form a pile. We`re proud to offer Bayshore drilling rigs for our Cast in place piling projects.

Bored Piling Advantages

  • Length can be readily varied to suit varying ground conditions
  • Soil removed in boring can be inspected and if necessary sampled Or in-situe tests made
  • Can be installed in very large diameters and very long lengths
  • Material of pile is not dependant on handling or driving conditions
  • Low noise and vibration installation
  • Able to carry very high load / shear / moment capacity

Bored Piling Disadvantages

  • Significant spoils are generated that need to be handled, adding costs
  • Susceptible to “waisting” or “necking”
  • Belled piles cannot be formed in cohesionless materials
  • Reliance and coordination on multiple trades (rebar supplier, piling crew, and concrete supplier)

Helical Piles

Ideal for almost any application, helical piles can be quickly installed with little impact on immediate surroundings. Helical piles can be cut, capped, and used without delay, and without a nearby source of concrete. If the time comes, helical piles can be easily removed for re-use or recycling, assisting customers with addressing environmental concerns, and drastically reducing remediation costs. Helical piles are also sometimes referred to as Screw Anchors, Helical Anchors, Screw Piles, Helical Pilings or Helical Piers.

Helical Piling Advantages

  • Economical alternative compared to traditional deep foundation techniques
  • Quickest method of piling installation when properly designed and installed
  • Load can be applied immediately after installation
  • Minimal environmental impact
  • Minimal noise and vibration
  • Removable and reusable
  • Versatile foundation system: pile groupings and/or battered install offers limitless possiblities
  • Year round installation
  • Soil strength feedback and confirmation during installation
  • No drill spoils and no requirement for concrete
  • Extensions can be applied to increase length and capacity

Helical Piling Disadvantages

  • Difficult penetrating very hard bearing layers
  • Installation through strata that may damage helixes can cause issues (i.e. rocky soil layers)
  • Manufacturing lead time is required for projects


Helical piles are installed by pinning the top of the pile to a hydraulically powered drive head and rotating the pile into the ground until the helical plate(s) are installed to a desired depth and a satisfactory installation torque is achieved
