R.A. Bullivant; Roger Bullivant Ltd., Burton-on-Trent, UK

The development by Roger Bullivant of an extendable sectional driven precast concrete pile into a more competitive and viable alternative to existing conventional piling systems. It traces the innovative by RB Piling of the steel mini pile to the square section extendable precast concrete pile. Coincidental with the work on the piles themselves, the Company has had to develop its own particular types of piling rigs to meet the needs of the new techniques. The trials, failures, successes and the need to convince a skeptical profession and industry have been made worthwhile by the ultimate financial success of the Company and its products - RB Piling, the Company, is innovative, professional and successful. The paper takes us through the complete development cycle from conception to placement.
