What Are Piles?
In building construction, a pile is a long, post-like cylinder that is driven into the ground to provide support for a foundation. Piles can be made of timber, steel, concrete, or other materials, but they ultimately all serve the same function. When the soil at a construction site is weak or loosely packed, piles are installed deep into the ground until they hit solid bedrock. Then, the foundation can be built upon the piles, which transfers the weight of the load to the bedrock. Since the bedrock is sturdy, it is able to offer the support that the soil alone can’t provide.
What Are Grouted Piles?
While pile-foundation construction has been around for centuries, it has been fine-tuned by modern technology. These days, grouted piles are the preferred type of pile used in construction. Installing a grouted pile entails drilling a hole into the ground with a hollow, tube-like auger. Once the hole has been drilled, a cementitious grout is pumped through the auger until it fills the hole. The grout then hardens, leaving the grouted pile firmly in the ground. This method of pile construction is preferred as it is much more efficient, cost-effective, and time-saving than inserting precast piles into the ground.
