Pile probing has become increasingly popular in the last few years. Checking proposed pile locations for obstructions and/or voids before the piling rig arrives on site allows piles to be relocated and ground beams to be redesigned without delaying the project or uncurring expensive standing time charges.
We use our MkII Geoprobe rig to carry out most of our pile probing work, with 200 liner metres of probing typically completed each day. The rig is permanently mounted in a 2WD Iveco panel van and can be rapidly deployed to each pile location. The rig’s built-in concrete breaker allows us to make a 75mm diameter hole through any concrete paving or floor slab, before driving a 50mm diameter probe to the required depth.
We cane use the same rig to carry out probing for UXO, thus avoiding duplicate costs being incurred.
