In piling, Rotary Bored Piles are used when piles with a large diameter are needed to provide a high load capacity. They are also used when in areas with difficult ground conditions such as rock or boulders. Rotary bored piles also have the advantage of having the reinforcement cage installed into the open bore, with can then accommodate full length reinforcement.
Step 1: Set up with drill; with or without permanent casing at pile position.
Step 2: Drill to desired depth adding drill rods and casings as work proceeds.
Step 3: Remove drill rods leaving empty pile borehole.
Step 4: Fill pile borehole with concrete/grout and place reinforcement.
