At ADS we have pioneered the technique of piering, shoring and underpinning by hand on sites with restricted access, and often on sites with suitable access for heavy machinery but on which we may be a more cost effective alternative.
The Company was established in 1999 by two brothers and has expanded to a team of ten. The owners have 25 years combined experience in the field and continue to expand in the types of jobs undertaken.
The ground conditions in the area in which we operate are mainly made up of a variety of sand types, sandstone bedrock is sometimes encountered below sand level. Over the years we have invented and developed equipment and methods to handle various situations and tackle difficult projects.
We have completed many jobs across the Eastern suburbs, with many projects such as homes, home additions, apartment blocks, commercial premises and swimming pools not being possible without our sub surface solutions, ingenuity and plain hard work.
We work with builders, engineers and architects to find the best sub soil structural solutions to help you successfully complete your project. The experience we bring is one of our greatest assets and it benefits our clients as much as ourselves.
We have solid working relationships with a variety of high quality contractors involved in the rock anchoring and shotcreting industry, so we can either incorporate them into our contract package or advise you who we believe is best suited and equipped to supply any additional related services.
Access is often a major problem in the Eastern areas of Sydney, so manual piling is the only possible method of piering, especially in the early stages prior to excavation, etc. But we are sometimes a cost effective alternative on sites with ample access and cause far less damage and upheaval than large piling rigs, their support vehicles and equipment. In suburban areas this and our quiet work method are often an asset.
We also supply compact concrete pumps which are perfectly suited to the work we do and, again, cause far less disruption than bigger truck mounted units.
For more than twenty years we have undertaken some of the most difficult and awkward projects and have always brought them to a successful conclusion.
