The BBI Friction Pile saves money by removing the time associated with drilling the site, the costs of a Drilling Rig Rental, Rig Operator, and Ground Labor.
BBI does not need ANY CONCRETE. The Friction Pile is a steel alternative. By removing the time associated with concrete trucks & delivery schedules, the costs of Concrete, Rebar, Crane Rental, Tying Rebar, Pouring Concrete, Forming, Shoring, Dewatering and applicable Ground Labor, BBI provides instant savings!
BBI Friction Piles remove the time associated with excavating the site and removing the spoils. BBI Friction Piles are hydraulically driven to depth with very minimal disturbance to the ground.
With BBI Friction Piles there is no need for dewatering pumps or dewatering the hole which cause delays and costly overages. BBI Friction Piles are installed in any weather climate.
Since BBI does not excavate the site there is no cost or time delays to shore, step-back, or form a secure hole for workers.
BBI Rapid Pile Installation (RPI) is a simplistic four step method: Mobilization, Install FP, Remove the Driving Head, Set the structure. There is no waiting for concrete strengthening, testing, or costly delays with defective concrete.
Install up to 14 Friction Piles a DAY! The Friction Pile (shown right) was installed in Sand/Clay/Water in under 11 Minutes!
BBI uses hydraulics with maximum crowd force and controlled energy to install the Friction Piles.
With a GPS guidance system built-in BBI RPI equipment, the Friction Pile is perfectly plumb and laser sighted. Perfect for self-supporting structures.
