Remediation Services & Driven Piles in San Antonio

Remediation Services & Driven Piles

Depending on soil and structure conditions, remediation or retrofit work may benefit from the use of driven piles, or push piers, made of steel.

Quality First Steel Piles for Remediation

Our proven, patented solutions provide peace of mind from the ground up: from design to manufacturing to installation.

Our in-house engineers may design a custom solution for particular needs, which is then manufactured at our facility—ensuring quality control from start to finish. Our ISO9001:2008 certification indicates our commitment to strategic performance through quality, providing better products and customer service.

Our ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) Evaluation Report (ESR- 1854) issued in February 2011 on Ram Jack® Foundation Systems reviews our hydraulically driven system, as well as our helical pile systems. This review of our system as well as individual components provides detailed specifications, capacities, and installation details.

How Driven Piles are Installed for Remediation

Our driven piles are prepped by placing a steel bracket beneath the foundation of an existing structure. Two hydraulic cylinders press the piles into the ground, reacting against the load of the structure. We attain sufficient load-bearing surface by adding extensions to the pile, effectively creating an instant pile ready to be loaded immediately after installation.

For jobs that require uniform and/or incremental lifting of the structure, the lift can be done in a manifold system, connecting several hydraulic cylinders to lift each pile as-needed, independently from the others, but available to lift simultaneously if needed.
