A micropile is a small diameter (305mm or less) friction pile that is bored or drilled and can be installed at an angle to accommodate axial and lateral loads. Load carrying capabilities depend on the quality of the bond between the central reinforcement, grout and the type of soil/rock.

We have added a Commachio MC15 Micro Piling Rig which has the ability to undertake piling ranging between 200mm and 400mm in diameter. The Asia Capital Residencies project which we undertook comprised of over 600 micropiles. It is indeed a derivative of the concept of value engineering; it is also a time and cost effective solution.
