What is a pile?
A pile is a structural element which is typically used to transfer the load from a building or structure, down below the grounds surface into the acceptable subsurface material or depth required to carry the specific load being imposed.
What types of piles do we offer?
Cast In Place Piles, Friction Piles, Screw Piles, Shoring Walls, Sound Walls, Belled Piles, Enhanced Base Piles, Restricted Access Piles, Low Head Room Piles, Rotary Bored Piles, Large Diameter Piles, Caissons, King Posts, Secant Piles, Contiguous Piles, Tangent Piles, Concrete Piles, Retaining Walls, Slope Stability Piles, Mini Piles
How do I know which pile type I need?
We are able to better help you answer this question once there has been a geotechnical report completed for the project. Once we have reviewed the report and been provided with the structural loads we are able to provide a number of alternative solutions based upon our experience and potentially with the aid of pile design proof testing. With our in house design capabilities we are able to provide value engineered solution from which we can provide cost certainty.
Does size or technique matter?
The type of sub surface soils, pile layout and imposed loadings will ultimately determine the size, type an installation technique. Midwest Caissons are able to provide solutions ranging from 200mm to 3650mm diameter piles up to 34m depths with or without enlarged, enhanced or belled bases. With Midwest Caissons available equipment and in house design, there isn’t a project we can not provide a solution for.
Where do we operate?
Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Lethbridge, Grande Prairie, Fort McMurray, Peace River, Medicine Hat, Fort St John, Kelowna, Saskatoon, Regina, Lloydminster, Prince Albert, Swift Current, Kamloops and their surrounding areas.
What do I need to have prepared before a piling crew comes to my site?
It is 100% mandatory that a current first call or locate ticket is in place for the scope of work being conducted (piling) and that it remains current for the duration of the work. No ground disturbance shall take place until this has been completed. Midwest Caissons prides itself on their safety record customer care and is happy to walk through all aspects of the project planning for a safe and successful completion of any piling scope. It’s what we do.
