It's nice to see more renders, but those renders are really crappy and not very professional looking.

I'm no expert so I hope someone can correct me if I'm wrong anywhere :-)

There can be two purposes, and probably both are happening at the same time here.
- contiguous piles are being laid down in a perimeter and will act as retaining walls for the basement excavation
- deep and regularly spaced piles that are bored down to rock layers and are the actual foundation piles. Those will be inside the perimeter defined by the retaining wall.

Once all this is finished, excavation of the basement will commence.
I hope it helps :-)
