Pre-construction service

Once you speak with Sheppard Piling it soon becomes apparent how committed that we are to the project and the detail. Each project is very different and so is the level of detail that we receive from the client. We operate a pre-flight procedure to ensure that we possess the correct soil, geotechnical or structural reports to determine the most suitable and cost-effective piling method.

Turnkey Design

Our experienced engineers offer a fully insured design service that conforms to the latest building regulations, NHBC and British Standards. We specialise in pile design where we able to value-engineer our proposal which leads to a cost-effective design solution which we achieve by comprehensive site research and geo-technical design. We offer a complete turnkey service including sub-structure design which includes re-enforced concrete beams and slabs. Full design calculations are available for our projects, with all works fully insured and warrantied for 12 years.

Project go-ahead

Upon confirmation of the order our contracts team will visit site to carry out an inspection as part of our pre-flight process where they will advise on set-up and piling efficiency. We believe that looking at a drawing and sub-structure reports will only provide so much information, but once we visit site we would hope to be able to recommend alternative methods of delivering the project that will save both time and money. The RAMS will be prepared along with the pile design and submitted to the client for approval.

Post-construction service

We believe that post-construction is as important as the piling project itself. The handover documentation is essential for submission to building control for approval and to check against groundwork specifications. If instructed, we will organise integrity, load and dynamic testing for your pile installation.

Once the project has been officially handed over to the client we will prepare our post construction pack which includes all pile designs, RAMS, pile logs and pile test results and any photographs that are deemed necessary for the completion of the project.
