Regarding "piles" I honestly don't know if that is what they are. That is the "google translation" from Hebrew to English, and we don't have an English speaking construction person here to give me the real terminology in English.... SO, any help you can give would be good.

I've seen a picture of these, and they look like very long thin bars standing upright, driven into the ground and completely surround the outer wall of the building, they make up the support structure for an underground construction

Hope this helps

Deborah

Hi All,

I need to write about a construction project.

We have the term "piles" (which look like long tubes to support an outer construction wall).

How would I say... 1,800 piles were xxxx...

Drilled?
Built
raised?

To support the outer walls.

Full sentence would be: "1,800 piles were xxx to support the outer walls."

Thanks in advance,

Debbie
