CFA, also known as auger cast piling, is a Piling in Birmingham technique used to create concrete foundations. It begins with the shafts being drilled deep into the ground, with a single-stemmed auger. Then once they are ready, cement is poured into them. After that, reinforced steel cages are put into the wet column to create piles that can uplift lateral loads. To maximize efficiency, the drilling process is monitored by a computerized system. The data collected during the process is compared with the targeted requirements, so we can create foundations that maintain the structural stability of the building. As it is a vibration-free process, it is ideal for construction in urban areas.

These mini piles are placed adjacent to each other on every side of the foundation. Reinforced steel is cast through which allows these piles to bear tension and maintain a strong foundation.
