Miniature Yet Mighty: The Top 4 Advantages of Mini Piling

Mini piling is a type of piling system that, as its name suggests, uses piles with a narrower diameter than their traditional counterparts. As such, they tend to be lighter in weight and less expensive, whilst still being able to support considerably heavy loads.

Read on below as we discuss the top four advantages that mini piles have to offer.

1 | Mini Piling Allows You to Reach Restrictive Areas

One of the main advantages of mini piling is that it allows you to access and work within limited spaces and areas with restricted access, such as inside buildings and homes. This also makes mini piling more suitable than traditional methods when it comes to areas with poor ground conditions where soil excavation and removal could otherwise cause issues, since they can still create a stable, even framework where traditional piling is no longer viable.

The reason this is the case is because mini piling rigs are a lot smaller than traditional pining machinery and equipment.

2 | It Can be Used to Reinforce Existing Structures

Whilst traditional piling is often used to create new structures, mini piling can also be used to strengthen existing structures, such as railway bridges, floor slabs and retaining walls, or even used as an alternative to traditional underpinning.

3 | Mini Piling is More Environmentally Friendly than Other Piling Systems

Because mini piles use far less concrete and steel than other piling systems, they naturally reduce the carbon footprint of the project that they’re carrying out. On top of this, mini piling rigs can be installed with minimal environmental impact, meaning fewer trees and habitats are disturbed in the process.

This makes mini piling a favourable option to be used where possible, since the construction industry is one that is always looking for ways in which it can reduce its otherwise high carbon footprint.

4 | It Causes Less Disturbance

Not only does mini piling cause less disturbance to the environment, but it also causes less disturbance to the public. Unlike traditional piling and other construction projects, which produce a lot of noise pollution and disturbance - especially in densely populated residential areas, mini piling generates much less noise and vibrations.

This is thanks to air compression and a low energy output. Along with the fact that they can more easily access tighter, more compact spaces, this is another reason why mini piles are ideal for close proximity builds.
