Piling Contractor Herne Bay
Having started working life in precision engineering and moving onto groundworks and construction projects, RDM can carry out open bore sectional flight auger piles upto 300mm diameter and 17 meters deep (in certain ground conditions) with our GP T5000 restricted access rig and portable power pack. this little rig can be used upto 25 meters away from the power pack using hydraulic umbilical pipes enabling us to get to some tricky spots! We also have our own putzmeister sp11 grout pump that we use to fill the piles with which can be sited upto 45 meters away from where the pile is. RDM works closely with several local structural and geotechnical engineers to make sure everything is calculated correctly.
