Project Description

 Drilled micropiles are piles with diameters of up to 300mm. They are constructed by installing reinforcement bars or casings and grouting them. It’s a cost-effective technique.

Presentation and key elements

What is it?

Drilled micropiles are piles with diameters of up to 300 mm. They are constructed by installing reinforcement bars or casings and grouting them.

When and why use it?

Micropiling is most commonly utilised as a direct structural underpinning to support existing structures. This cost-effective technique is often employed when space constraints do not allow the utilisation of conventional piling equipment.

💡 Menard’s tip

Micropiles can also be installed in closely spaced groups or grids as an alternative to conventional piling schemes on remote sites or under bridge abutments.
