Either tubular or H section steel installed with vibratory and impact hammers. Ideally suited to difficult, hard driving conditions, they offer cost effective solutions and are widely used in projects requiring high capacity axial loads. Being a displacement type of pile, no spoil arisings are generated. Testing can be quickly undertaken using non-destructive testing techniques allowing immediate pile loading and commencement of following substructure activities. Piles can be extracted and re-used after decommissioning in the longer term.
