40+ YEARS OF "ON GROUND" PILE FOUNDATION EXPERIENCE, INCLUDING OVER 1,500+ MAJOR PILE FOUNDATION PROJECTS

Ground Engineering provides full range of FOUNDTION ENGINEERING SERVICES including PILE FOUNDATIONS, Land Surveying, Bored Piles, Soil Testing. We leverage our years of experience and expertise working all over India to provide effective solutions in urban as well as remote locations.


Pile Foundation ensures the safety, reliability and viability of a vertical structure. The pile foundation principle is used when the Top layer of the soil is weak and cannot support the weight of the proposed vertical structure. With the help of pile foundation, the structural engineers transfer the weight of the proposed structure to the hard layer of the soil or rock that is beneath the weak top soil layer. Pile foundations is also used in case of heavy load structure such as tall building, water tank or a bridge.


The weight is transferred with the help of a pile foundation, that has a cylinder shape and is made up of concrete and steel. The pile is inserted into the soil to reach the hard layer of the soil. The number of piles is inserted and a vertical structure is built on them. A pile foundation consists of two components. First is pile or piles and second, a cap on them. The pile foundations are classified on the basis of the material used in the making of piles, characteristics of the soil and load transmitting characteristic of the pile .


There are two kinds of pile foundation based on the load transmission characteristics, end bearing piles and friction piles. The kinds of pile foundation on the basis of material of construction are timber piles, steel piles, composite piles and concrete piles. Driven piles and bored piles are the classification done on the basis of the soil effect.


Ground Engineering is the well-reckoned firm which promises its customers to render the flawless range of the foundation engineering services which mainly consists of the following:



All of our service providers leverage the years of decades with an expertise working all over the country with a strong farsighted vision which is only to deliver both an effective as well as efficient administration in all the needed locations specifically the urban and rural remote areas.


On the contrary, the Pile Foundation hereby assures the complete safety, entire reliability as well as proper viability of a vertical structure. The principle of the Pile Foundation is mainly consumed when an extreme top most layer of the soil is weak and is unable to support the weight of the proposed vertical structure. Therefore, with a help and support of the Pile Foundation, the panel of the structural engineers together shifts the weight of the proposed structure to the hard layer of the soil or rock which is available beneath the weak top soil layer. In addition to this, the Pile Foundation is also used in case of heavy load structure like the tall building, water tank or a bridge. The load is shifted with the support of the Pile Foundation which consists of a cylinder shape and is manufactured with the concretes and steel as well. For this, the pile gets inserted deep into the soil in order to reach the hard layer of it. A plenty of the piles are inserted and a vertical structure gets constructed over it.


Furthermore, a Pile Foundation consists of the two main components where a primary is the pile and secondary is a cap placed on it. The Pile Foundation is diversified on the basis of the material utilizes in manufacturing the piles, characteristics of the soil and load transmitting characteristic of the pile. Apart from this, there are two forms of the Pile Foundation which is dependent on the load transmission characteristics, end bearing piles and friction piles. The forms of the Pile Foundation on the basis of ingredients of construction are timber piles, steel piles, composite piles and concrete piles etc.
