Huge Cost Savings with DIP...

CMS has supplied and installed thousands of meters of piles
throughout the Windward and Leeward Islands and has
proven that DIP provides huge potential savings of up to 70%
of the value 
of traditional precast or steel encased concrete piling.

DIP successfully addresses the important issues of
shipping and importation costs:

  • In islands which do not manufacture concrete or steel piles,
    all piles must be imported. 
  • Duty and VAT are charged on the value of the piles
    plus freight costs.
  • DIP are designed to economically and efficiently
    ship in 20ft containers.
  • Concrete or steel piles are shipped by expensive 40ft flat racks, 
    or if over 40’, then costly steel fabrication to splice the piles on site and break bulk for concrete piles that can't be spliced.

The combination of considerably lower shipping, plus lower unit costs, accounts for much lower importation costs of DIP, compared to traditional piles.

These are some of the reasons why:

  • Ease of Shipping. In 20ft. containers.
  • Low mobilisation costs.
    Simple, small scale equipment.
  • Fast installation.  Piling Rates up to 200m per day.
  • Cost effective
    Saving up to 70% of traditional piling costs. 
  • Flexible. Pile anywhere a 30 ton excavator can go. 
    Piles can be driven less than a metre from existing structures and inside some buildings. 
  • Environmentally Friendly.  No spoil created. 
    Low Vibration.  Less Noise.
  • Self Proving.  A driven pile is a tested pile.
  • Immediate follow-on Construction
    No curing or site disruption.
  • Decades of proven success in foundations
    outside the Caribbean.

Huge Cost Savings with DIP
CMS has proven 
that DIP provides huge potential cost savings of up to 70% of the value 
of traditional precast or steel encased concrete piling.
DIP Capability and Environmental Impact
Ductile iron Piles can be driven at angles up to 45°, exponentially expanding the range of pile uses. They produce minimal ground disturbance even in close proximity to existing structures.
DIP Engineering
The Plug&Drive© DIP pile system's precision engineering consists of self locking joints,
 built for durability, consistency, strength and ease of installation.
Mobility and Adaptability
The Plug&Drive© DIP pile system's mobility and adaptability is due to compact,
 lightweight equipment and a comprehensive array of well designed accessories.
Dry Driven for End Bearing Piles
End Bearing Ductile Iron Piles are ‘Dry Driven’ into the ground until they reach practical refusal. Fast and cost effective to install in areas of bedrock or very dense, cohesive strata.
Grouted Annulus for Skin Friction Piles
Grouted Annulus for Skin Friction Piles is a simultaneous driving and grout injection method to install DIPs, creating skin friction and corrosion protection.
