The Shire Pile was the product designed and patented by Shire. In 1998, a major insurance company came to us with a challenge of how to provide structural support to houses where access issues cause major challenges with getting in to repair the building without causing more damage by trying to get heavy equipment through a house.  What they were finding was the damage caused by carrying out the repair was making the costs unfeasibly high.
The Shire Pile was created. Able to be carried by hand, installed using hand held equipment, with minimal soil disruption an no concrete it quickly became the industry standard for what is classed as ‘small’ piling repairs across the country. To quote Frank Russel, Operation & Development Manager for Lloyds Banking Grouo “Shire’s methods saved Insurers £10m in 3 years alone”.
