Caissons Explained

Caissons, also known as drilled cast-in-place concrete piles, are used when shallow foundations such as strip footings are not viable due to poor soil conditions.


Caissons carry structural loads down through poor soils to competent, load bearing soils or rock. We drill and install caissons up to 2.7 meters in diameter, and to various depths.


Our equipment is capable of drilling through bedrock as well, in the event that high structural loads require that the caissons be socketed in bedrock.
