Pile Driving

Stable, Strong Results through Safe, Skilled Performance.

The pile driving jobsite has no room for error.

Expert performance is the norm, and is provided only by professionals who are trained, tested, and qualified to assignments safely and accurately.

The skill of a pile driver to get the steel, concrete or wood piling properly into the earth is crucial to securing the success and safety of a project.

UBC pile drivers are experts in all aspects of this challenging job, beginning with pre-installation inspections of the material and job site using static and dynamic testing. They are skilled at determining load-carrying capacities, gauging hammer performance, and accommodating lateral, compression, or tension loads.

Some pile drivers are also commercial divers, responsible for the underwater construction required by many industries, including construction and power generation.

We invest the time and resources to make sure our pile-driving professionals produce superior results every time. We know that companies want a pile driver who can assemble and disassemble cranes and know how to handle all types of piles, and is skilled in welding and burning.
