Pile driving refers to the method of driving piles or panels into the ground without first removing any soils or materials. This method ensures a stronger foundation as the ground around the pilings or panels has not been disturbed or displaced, which helps prevent the risk of any future ground movement. We use steel or wood pilings for structural support in waterfront decks and piers and vinyl panels for seawalls and retaining walls.
The pilings or panels are driven into the ground with a pneumatic vibratory hammer. This method produces vertical vibration to drive the object into the ground. An excavator is used to suspend the hammer over the object being driven allowing ease of control. Constant attention is given to ensure the object is installed as plumb and straight as possible.
