New Foundation Piling
SOME OF OUR WORK
Trading for over 36 years. We have clients across South Africa. Our office is in Pretoria, Gauteng. We specialize in Underpinning/Piling and jacking to stabilise structures.
Our system can be preventative to stabilise compromised structures and used as an initial foundation solution before construction. HomepileAfrica uses jacking systems as a remedial and restorative method to jack and restore buildings that have collapsed. Jacking has since become a standard practice to stabilise buildings that have cracked.
Our "Open Trench" Piling, which is for new foundations, can be used in all types of soils. The use of piles to support structures is common practice but is hampered by the standard means of pile driving. The nature of standard piling equipment prevents piles being driven beneath existing structures and in small spaces.
The use of HomepileAfrica’s revolutionary equipment allows 165mm diameter steel piles to be placed in small and restricted areas as well as in difficult conditions.
HomepileAfrica’s system is a smaller version of the huge augured concrete pile that is more commonly used on large construction sites.
The difference is that the equipment used by HomepileAfrica can be carried into a building through the door, or onto hard to reach sites with ease, and the entire job can be done quickly and easily.
Piles placed in new already dug foundation trenches makes HomepileAfrica’s system extremely versatile.
HomepileAfrica’s system has been extensively and successfully used over the last 39 years in soil conditions such as turf, clay, collapsible soil, dolomite and sea sand, as well as in water e.g. on jetties etc.
The steel sleeve is then reinforced with concrete to take loads of 20 tons, tested and guaranteed. Even with the incredible versatility of the HomepileAfrica system, the company is not limited to small household contracts. Clustering piles together to take the loads required for multi-storey buildings is a common practice and is fast becoming a trusted and reliable method of stabilising large structures.
In fact, HomepileAfrica is often called in after traditional piling methods fail.
HomepileAfrica prides itself on its outstanding service delivery record and its flexibility to suit the client’s needs.
