Piling Record - how to review

Piling Record - how to review

Piling Record - how to review

Dear All,

I need your input regarding the above subject. For a project, how do you actually review the piling record? What are the items that are essential to check? One more question, how to calculate the pile-cut off level for the RC piles?

Thank you for your help.


RE: Piling Record - how to review

Perhaps explain the job. Normally the inspector on the job provides it. Unless objected to by the contractor, it stands.

RE: Piling Record - how to review

The things I would look for are:

- Design VS. Asbuilt locations. If within tolerance for location and plumbness, otherwise the foundations engineer needs to look at it.
- Pile at specified depth, or reached refusal. You can see this in the pile counts. The pile inspector would have done this and provided a report, so there shouldn't be a need to dig into the bulky paperwork (unless something is unclear).

I don't understand your question of how to calculate cut off level. Once the pile is in place you can only cut to design pile cutoff.
