What is Piling ?

It’s much known fact that the foundation of any building need to be strong enough to bear the load which can be vertical as well as horizontal in the events of earthquakes, heavy winds and hydrostatic pressure. Things should be done with foresightedness where to avoid any damage or calamity to the buildings, foundation should be done considering diverse conditions. The texture of the soil and waterlogging nature can also become factors to create a strong foundation. A strong piling is required in such cases, where long structures made of steel, concrete or reinforced steel are driven deep into the soil which ensures an even distribution of building loads over a big surface area. It is much essential for residential building to ensure strength in areas where soil is loose, that is basically in river banks, sea shore and dried up water bodies. For commercial properties its highly recommended as the load will be higher and also in cases where soil is weak.

There are many advantages for the entire building construction if a strong piling is done. The piles can be created in any size or length which reduces the construction time which is done with much planning and reduces less supervision when compared to shallow foundations. Effective use of piling in building construction ensures that building can take more loads than regular foundations.
