Why do I need piles in the first place?


How It Works

The Augered Cast-In-Place Pile is constructed by:

1) Augering into the ground to a specific depth or penetration criteria as determined by the soils engineer.

2) Once the criteria is met, concrete grout is pumped through the hollow auger stem.

3) The auger stem is slowly withdrawn to the surface while maintaining positive grout pressure.

4) The top of the pile is cleaned of debris, formed, and reinforcing steel is inserted.
