When deep foundations are needed in limited space, it’s essential that you use the most appropriate method to get the job done. In many cases, that’s ductile cast iron piling. 


Ductile piles use the displacement technique and prefabricated piles in a range of diameters to suit various different projects. This method of piling is idea for projects as diverse as warehouses and storage tanks, industrial and commercial buildings, bridges and pylons, pipeline foundations, and slope stabilisation. In short, this is a versatile type of foundation, and one that the team at Hamilton Bogie have a great deal of experience in installing.

To find out more about what we can do for you, please contact our team today. We’ll be happy to help you decide on the most appropriate type of piling for your project, and provide you with a free, no obligation quote for the work.


When the site has been prepared, and any necessary excavation completed, a driving shoe is placed, ready for the first pile. Each pile consists of pipes that are installed in the driving shoe, with the pipes being attached to each other as they are added and driven down until the appropriate depth has been reached. Once the piles have been installed, the pile heads are attached, ready for construction to begin.

In addition to the standard piles, we also offer grouted piles. For this, mortar is added around the pile, ideal for taking tension loads and to counteract corrosion of the piles. For more information, just get in touch. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.


There are many good reasons to opt for ductile cast iron piling. It offers a high production rate, creates no soil that needs removing, and is able to take large loads safely. Because every project has different requirements, we can calculate the optimum pile length for your load and the soil conditions, and make sure that your foundation is rock solid. If you’d like to discuss your project with our team, simply get in touch today.
