Having access to a large fleet of rigs enables Westpile to offer a broad range of piling techniques and services.
Cased Flight Auger Piling
Cased CFA piling was developed to improve on traditional CFA techniques and to be able to offer certain benefits of rotary bored piling without the loss of production that would historically have been the case.
CFA (Continuous Flight Auger) Piling
Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) piling was introduced into the United Kingdom in 1966 by Westpile. Our long experience of this system has shown it to be a speedy and cost effective method of bored piling.
Rotary bored techniques offe a larger range of pile diameters and depths than any other piling method; permit pile construction through particularly stiff or hard strata; offer concrete placement to below commencing surface level and can allow inspection of the pile during construction.
Retaining Wall Construction
Bachy can design and construct all types of piled retaining walls, using either CFA, Cased CFA or traditional rotary methods.
Contiguous Piled Walls
Contiguous walls can be installed in water bearing soils so long as the water is managed during the temporary and permanent phases of the project.
Secant Bored Piled Walls
Secant piled walls are predominately constructed so that the female piles contain lower strength material than the concrete in the male piles. Walls are installed as hard/firm or hard/soft depending upon the specified requirements for the secant wall and the basement lining wall.
Restricted Access Piling
Bachy has a fleet of rigs that provide the capability to install piles in a number of restricted working conditions.

Westpile Has Merged With Bachy Soletanche
Soletanche Bachy has announced that it has consolidated its Westpile business under the Bachy Soletanche name as of 22nd March 2019 in order to simplify its operating structure and add efficiency.
Westpile, which started out as West’s Rotinoff Piling Construction Company in 1924, was bought by Bachy in 2003 and merged with Simplex in 2010.
According to Bachy Soletanche managing director Chris Merridew, the decision comes after a review of the businesses which started late last year. “Our fleet and staff have been shared for several years, so the operating approach has become very similar between the businesses. From a client’s perspective the changes will result in improved project delivery whilst maintaining the personal relationships made over time,” said Merridew.
Current projects being handled by Westpile will continue to be delivered under the Westpile brand, but new projects will be undertaken by Bachy Soletanche.
Barry Osborn who is the General Manager for BSL South will lead the combined business in the South with David Parker of Westpile maintaining his key role as Estimating Manager and leading the tendering in the combined business.
