Deep Foundation Solutions

Deep foundation elements transfer structural loads through non-load-bearing soils to competent soil or rock. Used most often when shallow foundations are not feasible due to weak, compressible soils near the ground surface. Micropiles, helical piers and underpinning, driven piles, and pulldown Micropiles are deep foundation elements.

Intech Anchoring Systems has experience with a full range of deep foundation elements, techniques, and products to provide the most cost-efficient and technically appropriate solution for any deep foundation project. We have relationships with multiple manufacturers to provide the best solution for your situation.

Micropiles (also referred to as mini-piles) are deep foundation, small diameter grouted piles typically consisting of a central steel reinforcement member and commonly includes steel casing. They are designed to carry very high capacity loads. Unlike a drilled pier, micropiles derive a large percentage of their load from the steel reinforcement. This, paired with achieving their load in skin friction, makes micropiles perfect for both tension and compression loads.

Micropiles can be used on a variety of projects, including the creation or fortification of foundations for bridges, towers, and new buildings. Their versatility has led to their increased popularity and their use in difficult construction conditions such as in areas of low clearance, restricted access, or collapsing soil types.

Compared to other foundation products, micropiles are customizable and cost-efficient because they eliminate the need for pre-drilling during installation.
