Driven Cast-in-Situ piles (DCIS)

Driven Cast-in-Situ piles (DCIS) in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, DRC Congo, Mozambique, Zambia, and the rest of the East African region.

Driven Cast-in-Situ (DCIS) piles are a type of foundation piles that are installed by driving a steel casing into the ground using a drop hammer, vibratory hammer, or hydraulic hammer, and then casting concrete into the hole while slowly withdrawing the casing. The piles are reinforced with steel bars and can support heavy loads, making them useful for construction projects in areas with challenging soil conditions.

Our services include:

  • Design and Engineering: This involves the design and engineering of DCIS piles, taking into account the soil conditions, load requirements, and other factors.
  • Installation: This involves the installation of DCIS piles, which includes driving the piles into the ground and filling the hollow shaft with concrete.
  • Testing and Quality Control: This involves testing the DCIS piles to ensure that they meet the required specifications and quality standards.
  • Maintenance and Repair: This involves maintaining and repairing the DCIS piles to ensure that they continue to provide a strong foundation for the structure.
  • Project Management: This involves managing the DCIS pile installation process, including scheduling, budgeting, and coordinating with other contractors and stakeholders.

Some of the common applications of DCIS piles are:

  1. Building and Construction: DCIS piles are commonly used to support buildings, apartments, and other structures.
  2. Infrastructure: DCIS piles are used to support bridges, highways, tunnels, and other infrastructure projects.
  3. Energy and Utilities: DCIS piles are used to support wind turbines, power plants, and other utility projects.
  4. Mining: DCIS piles are used in the mining industry to support mine shafts, tunnels, and other infrastructure.
  5. Oil and Gas: DCIS piles are used in the oil and gas industry to support offshore drilling platforms and other infrastructure.

Overall, DCIS piles can be used in any application where deep foundations are required to support heavy loads and ensure the stability and safety of the structure.
