EXCELLENT!!!

Piling completed, now they have to do some shallow excavation to revele the pile caps, brake them (the concrete part) and start working on the Raft Foundation.

Why do they break the piles?

I know nothing about construction techniques, a few explanations would be appreciated !

They don't break the piles, they break their top, to reveal the metalic sceleton inside.

Have you ever connected two electric or telephone wires together? Same thing.

Not that I know much about construction techniques, but after taking some thousands of construction updates pictures, you get to learn something
