Foundation Support Systems
Foundation Support Systems started as a general construction company in 1988 trading as IH Construction at the time. In 2008 we changed our business model to specialize in underpinning and piling and in 2017 changed our name from IH Construction to Foundation Support Systems to better describe the work we do.
We use traditional Bottom Driven Steel Cased Piles for our piling. A pneumatic mole is used to drive the steel tubes into the ground until they reach refusal. The advantage of this piling system over the other piling methods is that it enables piles to be placed in restricted areas which large piling machines are unable to access.
The method involves driving the pipes into the ground using a pneumatic mole (currently we use the Grundomat pneumatic mole) until they reach refusal or reach adequate levels of friction. These pipes can be inserted in open trench environments or under buildings. The pipes are then filled with concrete and reinforcing to form a very strong support for foundations under stress.
Our piles come with a conditional five year load guarantee of 15 tons each which is transferrable in the event of the property being sold within this period.
