Driven Ductile Iron Pile Solutions
Val de Vie
Percussive pre-drilling and grouting using sister company Geomechanics created a safe passage for the ductile iron pile to be driven.
KaXu Solar One Solar Plant
The KaXu Solar One is a concentrated solar thermal plant, located 50km North East of Pofadder in the Northern Cape. It covers an area of 1,100 hectares.
Bloemfontein Central Park Shopping Centre
Very tight access piling, as close as 30cm from existing column, with limited headroom of 2.5m in places. 28 end-bearing piles were installed to depths between 8-10m in only two days on site.
Dora Nginza Hospital
This large scale job entailed installing 210 end-bearing piles with limited geotechnical information.
Abutments for pedestrian bridges to cross the N2 alongside the R44
GeoPile Africa and Geomechanics were contracted for the founding of two pedestrian bridges which are being built on both North and South sides of the R44 vehicle bridge which crosses the N2 near Somerset Mall in Somerset West.
Driven Ductile Iron Piling solution proven in boulders and cobbles
A recent trial proves that ductile iron piling can be driven through boulder/cobble layers and therefore presents a cheaper and faster alternative to other methods including continuous flight auger piles, driven cast in-situ concrete piles and percussion drilling.
