In some cases the local authority, engineer or NHBC will require
independent confirmation of a piles length and integrity of the concrete
(that the concrete in the piles has no voids or cracks). Micropiling
can arrange any suitable integrity testing company of your choice
to carry out this work.
Micropiling will also ensure prompt turnaround of the independent
integrity testers reports and ensure all relevant parties receive
them. There is also sometimes a requirement for concrete cubes to
be taken to ensure the concrete used in the pile, ground beam or slab
process is of the strength required by the engineer. This is done
by crushing the cube in a strength monitoring machine until it cracks.
Once again an independent company is required to carry this out and
Micropiling can arrange for them to attend site, take sample cubes
of concrete and test them at the appropriate time scales (normally
7, 14 and 28 days). Micropiling will also deal with the reports.
