CSI were recently requested to check the quality of the pile pour at a Wellington apartment development. The following case study details the project requirements, solution and key results and benefits for the client using our pile integrity testing services.
This was done in 10 stages as the piles were completed. CSI were given specifications to test 50% of the piles poured before any structure was built on top. This percentage of testing was selected to give a lot of confidence to the building owner; as to the quality of the pour. There was minimal preparation as the piles were bare. This is really where Pile Integrity Testing comes into its’ own! With minimal fuss and no destruction, piles can be checked; ensuring future stability for the structure.
