Why install piles before construction?
Certain soils such as clay soils which are compacted under the effect of dryness, have an insufficient bearing capacity to support the weight of a building. Installation of piles before construction is less expensive than the stabilization of a building and makes it possible to avoid all the other expenses connected to the degradation of a sinking foundation.
When is it best to install piles?
A study of the soil, carried out by a certified laboratory, will determine the composition of the soil and its bearing capacity. Based on this information, we can determine whether or not there is a need for piles before construction.
