Mini piling helps in compact redevelopments

Mini piling can help in construction work on previously developed sites, which may be surrounded by other developments that make access an issue.

With compact mini piling rigs, tighter access routes can be made viable, while less room is needed on the site itself.

Suburban environments are one example of where properties can be constructed at relatively high densities, putting room at a premium for any future projects.

However, according to a report from Policy Exchange, almost one million people moved away from urban residential areas in the years from 2001 to 2008.

“There are more jobs and higher wages in cities and nearly two thirds of people would prefer to live in the suburbs of urban areas,” the report notes.

As more people move to the edges of cities, this in turn applies renewed pressure to the availability of suburban housing – particularly when developing greenfield sites is not an option due to planning constraints.

With mini piling, even compact plots can be developed to their fullest potential, minimising negative environmental impacts and delivering the maximum benefit to housing availability in the area.
