HISTORY OF PILE DRIVING

A proven method that has been used in construction for thousands of years.
Prefabricated piles (wooden) have been used for more than 6,000 years and are still used successfully today.
A number of houses by the lakes in Switzerland were built on wooden piles around 500 BC.
The use of ferroconcrete as a building material for piles was a natural
consequence of earlier discoveries in the field of concrete technology.
