Pre-cast Concrete (Pre-stressed) Piles
Pre-cast concrete piles are the standard pile selection for many residential, commercial and industrial projects which require a driven pile in Manitoba. If you compare load capacities and affordability, it makes them the premier choice for most designs. We can install 305mm (12”), 355mm (14”) and 405mm (16”) diameter hexagonal pre-stressed, pre-cast concrete piles up to 25 meters (82 ft.) in length. These piles can be spliced to suit any application and/or conditions to reach beyond the 25m depth.
Steel H and pipe piles are typically used in commercial, industrial and bridge-building projects where increased penetration into hard till or granular material is required. Steel H piles are reliable and cost effective.
Steel piles come in many different sizes and thickness to accommodate most load requirements. They have high strength and uniform quality. Steel piles are also easily spliced for deep foundation applications.
Timber piles are typically the most affordable piling material due to the material cost and weight. They are also used in residential, commercial and industrial applications where lighter loads are required. Timber piles are susceptible to rot when exposed to the two elements - water and oxygen. Hence, timber will last a long time when placed below groundwater level. Preservatives such as pentachlorophenol, creosote and chromated copper arsenate (CCA) are applied to help prevent insects and decay of the timber. We carry timber piles in lengths up to 75 feet.
A routine inspection and repair of bridges is crucial to ensure that the structure is in good shape. Trottier Piling (2004) Ltd. offers inspection/evaluation of bridges and advice on most projects. We are fully bonded and can also build and repair timber, concrete, steel bridges and other water crossings. In order to maintain quality, we work closely with fully qualified suppliers and trades for any made-to-order products and materials.
