Method Statement for Jack-In Pile Installation

1.1 This procedure refers to the installation of Jack-In piles only

Jack-In Machine
2.1 System Used : Gripped System
2.2 Maximum Pile Size : 150mm ~ 250mm Square, 150mm ~ 250mm diameter
2.3 Maximum Jacking Force : 100ton

Other Equipment
2.1 Air Compressor/ Diamond Cutter
2.2 Welding Set
2.3 Generator Set

3.1 The pile position is set out on site using steel peg.
3.2 2 reference steel peg would be installed equidistance from the pile centre at about 500mm away.
3.3 The pile would then be pitched and positioned into the exact pile point position such that the reference peg are
equidistance from the pile face.


4.1 All handling and lifting will be at the designed lifting points and support points.
During pitching and installation the verticality of the pile will be continuously monitored and plumbed to ensure
the pile is centrally in line with the pile axis to receive the ram to prevent pile whip, twist or rotation.
Each pile shall be clearly marked with red ink at 300mm intervals along its length to enable the jacked In
pressure/force to be.recorded at every 300mm depth of pile penetration.
The pile will be extended by butt-welding the steels plate on the pile heads. On completion of welding the slag will
be chipped off and wife brushed to receive bitumen or anti rust paint.

4.2 Installation of Pile

The vertical support structure of the jack-in machine is plumbed to ensure vertically by means of a spirit level or
plumb line. This is achieved by adjusting the four stabilizers. Pile shall be lifted and inserted into the equipment by
crane. The pile shall be position into the grip of the equipment and gripped the pile body. Once the pile vertical and
in position, jacking commences.
During the pile installation, the hydraulic pressure of main jacks is measured by the pressure gauge, and the
corresponding pile penetrations are recorded by the site staff at regular intervals. The pile may be extended by means
of welding. Except for pile jointing, each pile is jacked in continuously until the required resistance or penetration
is reached.
The required resistance is normally twice the pile working load, or higher of the jack supervising engineer so desired.
The corresponding pressure in the main jacks and the penetration are recorded.
The portion of the installed piles which is above ground may be cut to enable movement of rig.

3 Termination Criteria The jack-in force is determined by the engineer. Once the required pressure corresponds to the required jack-in force is indicated in the pressure gauge. UEP Subang Jaya.
