Mini Piling in Bournemouth and Poole | Groundworkers Covering All the Surrounding Areas

Where the ground is not strong enough to support the weight of an extension or other structure, we install mini piles. Seels CB can also provide mini piling to support new domestic builds in Ferndown, Bournemouth, Poole and across Dorset and Hampshire. Mini piles are ideal for residential projects where space and/or access might be limited.

Our groundworkers provide a full service to ensure strong and stable foundations while causing minimal disruption. We can provide foundation piling as part of property extensions and other projects or as an individual service. Our groundwork services also cover limited access piling.


About Mini Piling

Piling is used to transfer loads from a structure to the ground, helping support it. The process involves placing columns into the ground to transmit loads to a lower level of subsoil. In areas with weak soil, piles are crucial to distribute the weight of a structure evenly and give it a sturdy base.

Mini piling is a variation of piling that uses a narrower diameter. We either screw or drill a hollow steel shaft into the ground before pouring in grout or concrete, forming a small-diameter pile.

Depending on the job, Seels CB can create shallow or deep foundations.

Benefits of Mini Piling

As well as the piles being smaller, the machine used to install them is also more compact. This means mini piles can be used on sites with tight spaces or limited headroom. As such, they are an ideal solution for extensions and other domestic projects where a standard piling rig would not fit.

Furthermore, this form of piling causes minimal vibration and disturbance. This can make it suitable for groundworkers to use on sites near other buildings/structures and on sites with environmental concerns.

Other benefits:

  • Uses fewer materials than standard foundation piling

  • Suitable for new foundations and reinforcing existing structures

  • Limited-access piling allows for construction in tight spaces

  • Easier to reach greater depths

  • Works well in both tension and compression

  • Quick, easy installation depending on ground conditions

  • Small-diameter piles are a cost-effective option

  • Can be structurally incorporated into existing foundation systems
