Piling is the most versatile way of strengthening a building’s foundation, and mini piles are increasingly used for projects involving domestic properties and those with restricted access.


Mini piles have a narrower diameter than standard piles, but are able to support considerable loads. The most common mini piling type is a hollow steel shaft that is either screwed or drilled in to the ground, supporting the surrounding soil. Grout or concrete is then poured inside, forming the pile. Unlike boring, mini piling requires no additional supports, even in weak soil. Some of the advantages of mini piling include:

  • Very strong under both tension and compression
  • Fast install (depending on ground conditions)
  • Possible to create building extensions in tight spaces that wouldn’t normally be possible
  • Installation causes minimal vibration/disturbance to adjacent structures
  • More cost effective than other foundation solutions
  • Can be incorporated into existing foundation systems
  • Work in low headroom and restricted access spaces
  • Reduced carbon footprint through lower usage of concrete

DBR Ltd are able to provide a complete mini piling service, and will work to provide you with the most cost effective and technically suitable system for your project. We can install mini piles using different techniques, depending on the ground condition and project requirements. We have a variety of mini piling rigs, which gives us the flexibility to work on all types of site, including those with restricted access or low headroom. If you require mini piling, or would like to know more please contact us.

"I was hesitant to pay the asking price for this service as I was struggling a bit to justify it, but when I spoke to them they offered interim payment options and ever better than that, the guys I was fortunate enough to speak to Andy and also have had the opportunity to meet Carl, were so helpful and have actually been the main factor in us making the changes to our business to be more professional, efficient, organised and profitable. The various reports and breakdowns means that we have a schedule of works and BOQ along with H&S forms and contracts, so everything runs much more smoothly and we know where we stand and what we’re making/going to make in our project. Thanks a lot guys!”


“Hi Clare, The chaps have done a really grand job of fitting the work surfaces and kitchen. Thank you so much for organising that for us. It looks good and they cleared up marvellously well afterwards. You said they were top builders and you were right. What is the actual name as I’d like to mention how good they are in the next newsletter? I hope to see you next Thursday at the AGM – one or two have cried off already! Many thanks again Clare. Greatly appreciate it.”


“Carl Many thanks - the roof and timbers are taking shape now and we can now see how some of the rooms are panning out - the guys work really well and the finish of their cuts of the roof timber is excellent. Looking forward to the rest of the timber arriving tomorrow - I bet you are as well.”

Regards Mrs. P.

“Dear Sirs With reference to the job recently carried out by DBR. on my front porch and garage, I would like to commend you on the quality and speediness of the work rendered. Your carpenter, Richard, was professional and helpful. I was kept informed of his progress and the stages of the work, always. and he did a thorough job in tidying up the place daily. I have no hesitation in recommending your firm to others requiring building work.”

Your sincerely, Dr. Y Wong

"To all at DBR, We’d like to thank the DBR team for the excellent building work that has transformed our now beautiful home. Throughout the whole process your input suggestion and willingness to help has significantly enhanced the finished project. You went above and beyond the original extension and design brief, we’re particularly impressed with the way you optimized the plant hire and ground workers to incorporate a new parking area and fantastic sandstone terrace. In addition, most callers to the house, including complete strangers, offer positive comments (unprompted) about the property and design that we fortunately took your advice on. Thank you all once again."

Regards Simon & Victoria

Mr H Gannt, planning, design and cost consultancy, Wembley London

"Great service and work ethic and saves a lot of time pricing jobs once you are up to speed with the business model these guys use. The customer support from Carl and his team is second to none and has been great, would recommend this service to anyone that prices a lot of jobs and carries out new and commercial builds.”

Mr. Urquhar
