Driven Pile from Alberta to BC and Saskatchewan

The addition of the Liebherr LRH 100 Pile Driver has increased Westco Drilling & Piles Ltd’s scope of work from cast-in-place concrete piles to driven pile foundations. We provide driven pile foundations in Alberta, Southern BC, and Saskatchewan. 

We provide four different types of driven pile foundations:


H-beam piles are classified as point bearing, and they are dimensionally square, structural beams. They are driven into the ground for deep foundation applications. H-beam piles are manufactured and designed to transfer structural loads to bearing soils deep in the Earth. 

Westco Drilling also offers the service of splicing the H-beam piles when needed to extend the length of the pile.

Pipe Piles

Pipe piles are similar to H-beam piles which are designed to transfer structural loads through the foundation to soils below. Pipe pile efficiency is near that of cast-in-place friction piles, and they have a substantial surface area that interacts with the surrounding soil to provide great frictional load resistance.

Timber Piles

Timber piles are large debarked, pressure-treated straight logs that are driven into the ground as foundation support. Timber piles are best utilized in moist soil conditions.

The advantages of timber piles include:

  • Easy to handle
  • Relatively inexpensive where timber is plentiful 
  • Sections can be joined together 
  • Excess length can be easily removed

Sheet Piles

Sheet pile walls are constructed by driving prefabricated sections into the ground. Soil conditions may allow for the sections to be vibrated into ground instead of it being hammer driven. The full wall is formed by connecting the joints of adjacent sheet pile sections in sequential installation. Sheet pile walls provide structural resistance by utilizing the full section.

Our Projects

We’ve installed piles in a variety of different applications, including universities, bridges, and trails.
