Bangladesh Machine Tools Factory Ltd (BMTF) is manufacturing international standard Spun Prestressed Concrete (SPC) Pile for the commercial application in Bangladesh. These are of different sizes like 6m, 9m and 12m with varied thickness. SPC Piles are popularly used to support the high-rise building construction specially at coastal areas and reclaimed land.
SPC Piles are widely used in foundation engineering due to its high load bearing capacity, reliable quality assurance, simple manufacture process, and cost effectiveness. Very recently material composition, strength, properties, axial, shear and banding capacity of the SPC Piles are tested by MIST where BMTF manufactured SPC Pile exhibited very improved result.
Specification & Comparision
The Configuration of BMTF Made SPC Pile:
d. Load Bearing:75/120/150 Ton
SPC Piles are better than Cast in Situ Piles in following factors
a. Quality can be determined before drive
b. Cost effectiveness
c. Higher load bearing capacity
d. Actual load bearing capacity can be ascertained during driving
e. Quickest driving method
f. Environment friendly
g. Minimum workforce
h. Free from spil waste
j. Use of high density concrete and low water absorbance
k. Same concrete quality is maintain throughout the length of the Pile

|Measurement||20"/24"||Diameter-300mm/400mm/450mm, Thickness-75mm/90mm/100mm, Length-6m/9m/12m|
|No of Pile required||52-72 nos||36-40 nos|
|Load Capacity||70 tons||75/120/150 tons|
|Time||2 months (approx)||1 week max|
|Quality||Difficult to determine||Can be determined before driving|
Projected cost- per 5 khata plot
Projected cost of SPC Piles for a 5 katha plot with 40 nos of piles at a depth of 100 ft is 50 lacks BDT (applicable for the officers' plot at Jolshiri only).This price includes the cost of SPC Piles, driving cost and the transportation cost. This cost will remain effective for 2 months from now and vary with the changes of material cost in both local and international market.
Pre conditions of application
b. Need the completion of soil test and structural design duly approved by Jolshiri Authority.
c. Need minimum two flanks of the plot clear for the maneuver of driving vehicle. Therefore, construction of boundary wall may be discouraged.
d. Number of plots (applicants) will be converted into clusters basing on the proximity.
a. The interested officers can put their name with the details in following link: http:spc-pile.bmtf.com.bd
b. 50% of total payment to be realized during sign of contract with BMTF. 25% to be paid during driving and rest of the amount will be paid on completion of driving (basing on actual work done).
