Helical piling is primarily for projects with inadequate soil conditions. We install the piles, which are made of steel shafts with helical plates (screw threads), underground to transfer the weight of your structure to sit on top of them. Can be used in tension or compression and can be grouted to provide additional capacity. Also used as a soil nail in slope and retaining wall applications. Can be installed with hand rigged equipment for confined space or mid-sized equipment as well as large diameter with large excavator mounted drive equipment
We recommend this service for sensitive areas since the process is the least invasive and has minimum impact on the surroundings as well as being cost efficient.
A micropile is a friction pile with a narrow diameter that may be bored or drilled and placed at an angle if necessary to handle axial and lateral stresses. Depending on the soil conditions and use, micropiles can be cased or uncased. The central reinforcing bar and cement grout, once placed, facilitate weight transmission into the bearing soil or rock.
We recommend this service for soils that that have rock, dense ground, or concerns of interference issues below grade.
In most cases, we recommend this technique when underpinning existing structures since it has minimal noise and vibration.
Our soil nailing services are designed to remedy unstable soil slopes and strengthen the ground base of your structures. Generally, these are suited for clay, silty, and sandy soils. Our team can help assess the site conditions to determine if they will suit your project.
Additional Piling Services
Due to their adaptability, we use driven piles for more unique sites, such as marine and shore applications. Instead of drilling holes on the ground, we install these with vibration hammers to reach a certain depth.
