If you have ever worked on a construction site where foundation piling has been used, you are probably familiar with the site of piling rigs. These have an important part to play in the process of foundation piling, but what exactly is the purpose of piling rigs?

Essentially, the main role of a piling rig is to drill into the earth where the piling in question needs to be applied. Depending on the specific job, the earth could be clay, sandy soil or silt. They are commonly used for jobs involving foundations but can also have uses for diaphragm walls.

There are different types of drill available for use with piling rigs to take account of the fact that different ground conditions will have different requirements. Also, as some building sites are more restricted and harder to access than others, it is possible to get piling rigs of varying sizes so that difficult and hard to reach foundation piling jobs can be taken care of.

If you think you might need a piling rig for a job you are working on, you should always speak to an experienced professional to make sure you get the right equipment for the job in question.
