Construction of the first-floor platform should not begin until this elevation is established (see Fact Sheet No. 4). Installation Methods. Piles can be driven, augured, or jetted into place.
As floor framing was constructed from green or wet timber, shrinkage was an issue as the timber dried, particularly with joists deeper than 150 mm, and this often resulted in squeaking floors, or, where joists were not propped until dry, sagging. If joists required stiffening (this depended on the live load of the floor and the
The composite ground floor is suitable for support to all types of wall construction and can be used equally well on strip footings or mini-pile foundations. The light steel edge beams provide the accurate template required for internal timber or light steel wall frames to minimise fitting time and eliminate rework. The level and
Where poor soil conditions are found, foundations may need to be constructed on preservative-treated timber piles capped with wood or concrete sills. For more information on pile foundations, refer to the Timber Piling Council publication Timber Pile Design and Construction Manual,

SubBase Speedy Subfloor System products have been developed to speed up construction of decks, house subfloors, fences, and any job involving setting timber piles in concrete footings. They are easily attached to the bottom of the timber piles posts with a couple of nails or screws, before the piles posts are placed in

In a severe storm, an elevated, "open" foundation will allow floodwaters to wash underneath the first floor without putting an excessive load on the structure and bringing down the house. Under current National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) standards, which largely dictate local building codes in coastal
In this case, either sheet bracing or diagonal timber braces should be installed. Diagonal timber brace. Added diagonal timber brace to timber piles. In corner wall construction, the floor joists may not be adequately connected to the foundation wall. In this case, diagonal timber braces should be installed between the joist
Piles are driven a specified distance with a pile driver, and the remainder is left out the ground to which the floor foundation is attached. It is a wall that sits on a grade beam or slab and is a continuous wall that holds up the floor structure. Second, we drove wooden piles 6'-12' apart in the trench. Third

Timber floors are typically supported on piles and often a concrete perimeter foundation as well. As a result of the earthquakes, these foundations can settle into the ground and require re-levelling. In some instances, house piles will need to be replaced. MBIE have put guidelines in place to identify when the pile can.
