Saunders Civilbuild are able to manufacture prestressed/reinforced concrete piles. They are important elements used in the foundations of buildings, bridges and marine structures.
Throughout Australia, many areas have poor soil conditions which therefore make precast, prestressed concrete pile foundations an obvious choice for construction. Prestressed piles are the preferred choice among designers when performance, durability and economy are considered.
When precast prestressed piles are used in aggressive soil or marine applications they can be designed for long-life durability, to safely support vertical loads together with bending moment arising from lateral loads such as wind, waves and earthquake, as essentially un-cracked sections.
Saunders Civilbuild’s reinforced concrete piles can be seen being installed below.
