The property in Los Naranjos, Marbella was experiencing structural failure to the rear of the property as a result of excessive settlement in the soft clays.
Following careful demolition of the single storey extension at the rear of the property Rock Foundations (SL) mobilised a specialist restricted access piling rig. The Kitten rig was able to access the rear of the property via the garage without the need for further demolition.
The Kitten rig with its powerful rotary head was able to penetrate into the stiff clays 8m below the surface with a string of 200mm augers. The piles were then filled with a structural grout prior to a full length steel cage being plunged into the bore.
Following completion of the piling works Rock Foundations (SL) constructed a reinforced raft slab incorporating all of the new piles.
