Pier Foundation vs Pile Foundation

Pier and pile foundations are two types of deep foundation that often get confused. See the list of their differences below:

Pier Foundation

  • Supports and transfers superimposed large loads to a firm strata through its cylindrical columns.
  • Is drilled using a drill machine.
  • Transfers loads only through the bearing.
  • Shallow depth.
  • Is used only when the top strata consist of decomposed rock and stiff clays.
  • Required only for small loading.

Pile Foundation

  • Uses vertical, timber, steel, or concrete materials in transferring loads.
  • Is driven through from overburden soils to load-bearing strata.
  • Can transfer loads either through friction or both friction and bearing piles.
  • Greater depth.
  • Can be used even when the strata are not firm, and the loading is uneven, as long as it is at reachable depth.
  • Required for greater loads (e.g. bridges or flyovers).
