The percussion piling project at Thembisa Mall was undertaken for Thembisa Property Investments (Pty) Ltd and was divided into two parts: a geotechnical investigation to determine the rock profile and the piling project.

The geotechnical investigation took place over a seven-week period and entailed proof drilling the entire site. This included drilling 418 holes (foundation positions), to an average depth of 19m deep, in order to inform the design engineer as to the suitable foundation type for each of the required footing positions. The piling project that followed was successfully completed and handed over to a satisfied customer, within the 12-week contract duration.
