Belpile is a proudly Australian, privately owned, piling contractor that was established in 1987 in Queensland. In 1994 operations commenced in Perth, Western Australia, where the business now has its head office which is the centre of operations. Since commencement, Belpile has safely and successfully completed over 1100 piling projects around Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland, NSW and Victoria. In 2017 Belpile established a second office in South Australia and have since completed a number of both limited access and conventional CFA projects. Belpile have provided cost effective foundation and ground retention solutions across several markets, including small to large residential buildings, medium to high rise commercial structures and public and industrial infrastructure. We have a modern fleet of conventional and limited access piling machines equipped with the latest in automated monitoring technology.
Belpile are an engineering oriented piling contractor driven by the quality and performance of our work. We currently have a dedicated team of in-house geotechnical engineers who frequently provide innovative, cost effective, foundation and retention solutions for our customers. Our design expertise is backed up through an extensive library of static load testing and a comprehensive understanding of geotechnical conditions/problems. Belpile are active participants in the technical community for piling and deep foundations, presenting regularly at conferences across Australia and assisting with a range of research and development projects undertaken in co-operation with the University of Western Australia.
COMMITMENT TO OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY
Belpile highest priority is the health and wellbeing of its employees. We are committed to providing a safe working environment for our team and our clients. A pro-active safety culture is evident within our organisation, with individuals encouraged and empowered to take action where health and safety is concerned.

Belpile has developed a reputation for providing practical front end and detailed engineering advice for both engineering consultants and builders. We specialise in design and construct projects, using our technical ability to maximise design efficiency. All of our design solutions are fully certified/guaranteed and based on the requirements of Australian Standards, namely AS2159, AS3600, AS4678, as well as other international standards and best practice guidelines.
Our in-house engineers have honours or postgraduate degrees in civil engineering, specialising in geotechnics and foundation design
Our in-house engineers have honours or postgraduate degrees in civil engineering, specialising in geotechnics and foundation design. Our engineers are actively involved in research relating to Belpile products, which has been ongoing for the past 25 years. Current research underway is focusing on refining design parameters for CFA piles in Perth soils based on an extensive database of static load tests.
Belpile has compiled an extensive library of geotechnical reports, installation records and full scale load test results which is integrated with modern mapping software to provide a valuable tool for front end engineering. This often allows Belpile to implement more feasible, cost effective design solutions at the planning stage of projects.
Our engineering team have access to an array of modern engineering software to undertake foundation and retaining wall designs, including Oasys Frew, Alp, Slope, Plaxis, Piglet and Ratz. We have vast experience in soil/structure modelling for most foundation and retention situations. Most importantly, we regularly calibrate our design solutions with full scale testing and monitoring.
Belpile also frequently implement third party design reviews undertaken by industry experts at the University of Western Australia.
