BALI PREFAB WORLD has developed a special system and technique to have our models safely built over water, either in lakes or coastal waters. Our senior in-house Civil/Hydraulic and Geotechnical  engineer with 50 years of International experience under his belt may help and advise you on the required piling, piling depth and super structure. In order to safely determine the pile capacities one need to take into account the pile's end bearing capacity + negative or positive friction along the pile shaft. This will define the safe pile driving depth. Waves have minor influence on piles, however, it needs to be investigated if wave run up caused by cyclones need a special superstructure.  Our company would be happy to prepare a quotation for the engineering works for your over water project, even when you will not order one of our units. Pile structures can be made from either concrete, steel or wood. the latter being the cheapest.    

Properly employed timber marine piles are a long term, low cost, environmentally sustainable solution. They do not corrode and proper treatment protects them from environmental degrade mechanisms such as marine borers and rot. They do not require expensive cathodic protection systems or expensive coating systems to provide them with adequate service life, but they will benefit from wrap or a PVC tube encasement between the mud line and the high tide mark. If this is done the piles will outlast their counterparts with low initial cost, very low ongoing maintenance costs and wil last for > 50 years.
Piles below the mud line will not decay or be attacked by marine borers. Above the mud line and below the high tide mark (splash zone) they are susceptible to various levels of marine borer attack. This is generally classified in various standards as high hazard in salt water (coastal and some salt water rivers). In these waters we recommend a treat with a special wrap. Such treatment protects the timber from all kind or marine borers such as the most dangerous shipworm (Toredo, Bankia), the less dangerous gribble, piddocks, pill-bucks, and more.

Reviews from Bali Prefab World

"I contacted Bali Prefabworld while looking for a suitable contractor to design and build a Joglo style structure above the existing flat roof of our house in Canggu. Bali. The builder we had used for the house had not installed the sealing membrane properly and we were plagued by leaks and had decided to build the additional structure to help keep the water out and give us some really nice additional space on top of the house looking at over the rice fields. "

I was very concerned about getting a proper design that was both strong enough to withstand the occasional high winds and not degrade the integrity our house – basically we did not want the Joglo to end up in the rice field and leave a big hole in the roof where it had been attached!

Bali Prefabworld was extremely professional in every aspect – they managed to design a structure that was strong, did what we wanted and looked good.

The installation went as planned and we are completely satisfied with the end result.

I would definitely use Bali Prefabworld again!
