Deep Foundation work includes three main areas: Drilled shafts, Micorpiles and Miscellaneous Pile Methods. All three of these sections are outlined below along with links to some of our work. If you are looking for more information, be sure to visit our Contact Page to request more information.
Drilled shafts (also called caissons, drilled piers or bored piles) have proven to be a cost effective, excellent performing, deep foundation system, that is utilized world-wide. Typically they are used for bridges and large structures, where large loads and lateral resistance are major factors.
Micropiles (also minipiles of pin piles) are a deep foundation system constructed using casing and threaded bar in a variety of sizes. Micropiles are typically used for small diameter shafts and work well in tight working conditions and low overhead environments.
There are many other deep foundation options in the industry including but limited to Augur Cast Piles, Helical Piles, Pipe or H-Piles, and many others. We at Kiewit can provide many of these services and discuss what options work best with your Project’s needs.
