Soletanche Bachy presents its full range of piles: bored piles.
LDA (Large Diameter Auger) piles, more commonly known as bored piles, are used mainly as part of the foundation works for major structures or retaining structures.
A pile is defined as a structural element positioned in the soil to transfer loads and limit distortion. There are no limits on its slenderness ratio. Piles may be uniformly straight, threaded, flared and under-ream, or prefabricated.
Piles may be used in isolation or in groups. They can also form a mixed, continuous, secant or tangent piled curtain retaining wall or a composite curtain wall like a Berlin-type wall or similar. Piles are also used as plunge column (or stanchions) for structural incorporation into a building with basement levels.
Columns of this type are installed before any earthworks begin and can take part of the load imposed by the superstructure when it is constructed in parallel with the basement levels. They may be battered where specified in the installation standards.
