What We Offer

Ground improvement solutions that provide improved ground bearing capacity and seismic liquefaction resistance, as well as vertically loaded columns. Stone columns and vibro-replacement columns form the core of these options, often going hand in hand with other deep foundation options.

Stone Columns Capabilities

We install stone columns using a mandrel probe and vibro replacement method which creates a dense vertical column while also densifying the surrounding ground. This provides greater bearing capacity than the traditional stone column methods.

Timber Densification piles Capabilities

Timber densification piles can provide an efficient ground improvement option, especially where soft or unconfined layers may reduce the effectiveness of stone columns or additional vertical point loading capacity is needed.
