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.
Underpinning is the process by which existing footings are strengthened or braced to mitigate or prevent settlement.
SOLDIER PILING & LAGGINGS
This is the most common method of bracing an excavation when open cuts are not viable.
This is the most reliable method of shoring an excavation/soil face and in some cases is the only acceptable type of shoring allowed.
TIEBACKS & ROCK ANCHORS
Tiebacks, also known as soil anchors, and rock anchors are used to support retaining walls, shoring walls, and rock cuts.
hotcrete is used to protect open rock faces from degradation, and to add cohesion to the face.
LOW HEADROOM DRILLING
We are able to drill piles in very tight spaces, including inside of buildings and underneath of overhanging structures (i.e. bridges, wires) through the use of excavator-mounted drilling attachments.
MICROPILES & DRIVEN PILES
Micropiles are small-diameter cast-in-place concrete piles with a central steel member.
We can drive conventional steel piles, pipe piles, and sheet piles, depending on what your needs are.
