Piles are usually driven - that's what a pile driver does!

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
