COMMERCIAL MICROPILE INSTALLATION

Strengthen Your Building’s Foundation in Congested Areas & Soft Soil

A micropile is a long, steel device that goes deep into the ground to create a strong foundation for large, heavy buildings. Micropiles are highly useful because they do not take up much space, and allow for tall buildings to be built in cramped spaces. They are designed to sustain extremely heavy loads, and have been known to uphold weights in the excess of 1,000 tons.

Ram Jack has the skills and technology necessary to install these powerful foundation devices so that you can build your business exactly as envisioned, even in congested areas or on top of poor quality soil. If the neighborhood your business is located in is undergoing construction, you may want to consider installing a micropile to ensure that shifting ground will not impact your building’s foundation.

Advantages of Micropiles

Micropiles have quickly become a favorite tool for construction workers. They are relatively quick and easy to install, and do phenomenal work repairing a building with a damaged foundation. Micropiles can also be installed without pre-drilling, saving hours of time and cutting down on construction costs.

Some benefits of micropiles include:

  • Functional in virtually all types of soil
  • Extremely high load capacity
  • Work with both compression and tension loads
  • Very useful in confined spaces
