LDD can dramatically reduce clients’ project costs by implementing their drive-drill-drive method; also, commonly referred to as the '3D' method. When applied, 3D can often save clients significant time and material costs across their marine projects.

The 3D method can significantly increase cost efficiency and minimise risk of project delays.

The use of this combination of a drill and hammer saves time and cost by negating the use of a temporary casing, grout or concrete and reducing the size, and associated cost, of the piling hammer. Where pile fatigue is a factor, relief drilling inside and below the pre-driven pile will also significantly reduce the ultimate energy required to install the pile to target elevation.

Benefits of this system include: reduction in onsite schedule, eliminates the requirement for grout/concrete, reduces the size of equipment spread and offers significant contingency for unexpected ground conditions.
