Pile Mat Installation

A piling mat is a working platform designed to provide a reliable and stable surface on which piling rigs and other heavy plant can operate safely.

B&A is experienced in the construction of working platforms across a diverse range of sites where the ground is usually technically challenged, hence the need for a piled foundation solution.

The piling mat will be designed by considering:

  • The quality of the existing ground/formation. B&A undertake in-situ geotechnical testing (plate load tests, CBR tests or vane tests) to establish the nature of the ground and the required mat thickness.
  • The nature of the platform material – whether it be utilising site won materials on a brownfield site or importing recycled or quarried aggregates, the design will take into account the material compaction and drainage characteristics.
  • Reduction in the overall thickness of the pile mat by the use of geosynthetics in the design where geogrids can be incorporated to improve strength and assist in reducing the overall thickness required to take the required loadings.
  • Loading, both from plant when working and when moving across the pile mat
