I used the opportunity that there was no security guard and went to the construction site for a while. I met all the construction site safety requirements except hard hat so all these pictures are fully legal.

Continuous Flight Auger Piles



Continuous flight augering (CFA) is a technique used in construction to create concrete piles.






The CFA piles - drilled by continuous flight auger system - combine the advantages of the driven piles with the versalityof the bored piles.Thedrilling method allows to excavate in a wide variety of soils, dry or waterlogged, loose or cohesive , and also topenetrate through low capacity, soft rock formations such as loamy clays, limestones and sandstone, etc.
No shocks or vibrations are induced when the system is performed; in addition the equipment is fully sound - proofed,as per law requirements, making CF A the most convenient piling method for construction in town centres.
The execution of the pile with almost of the soil allows to work close to the existing structures. Besides, no bentonite mud is needed for the excavation, which means that provision and space for the side plant are reduced, there is no danger of bentonite contamination and, consequently, all problems connected to the disposal of the excavated materials are simplified.
The reduced volume of soil brought up to surface by the flight auger means less amount of excavated material whichhas to be trasported to the disposal point.
The range of diameters from 40 to 140 cm and depths up to 33 m, allows to overcome problems connectedto the project and execution of the pilings.
Soilmec experience gained in approximately 30 years in the execution of CFA pile, enables to operate the system evenin difficult grounds, thanks to the use of different teeth and augers.







Drilling is performed by an helicoidal steel plate welded to a central hollow stem which is provided at the lower part with teeth to help penetration through the ground. A disposable cap, fitted as plug at the end of the stem, prevents entering
of the soil when the auger string is driven down. The ground is partially pressed sideways by the auger penetration, which results in a compaction of the soil all around the shaft. The equipment generally consists of a flanged or tubolar type leader - depending length on pile depth - and of a crawler
unit on which the leader is mounted. Alternatively, the auger system is operated by self-erecting fully hydraulic rigs type R-Series and CM-Series that SOILMEC has especially designed for the CFA pile.

They put a lot of grease on the fence to make people refrain from climbing over.







But it didn`t refrain me from taking pictures anyway

You don't really have to, the pictures are really good now.

Unless you're serious about photography but a phone will do just fine for taking pictures of construction.
