Helical pile load testing is necessary for generating a plan for a new project. Engineers use this information to determine the optimal pile foundation. We use a spread of helical pile load tests in order to ensure that the true load testing in pile. Depending on the test, the results can give several options to proceed. While the specific might vary by site, we generally use the ASTM D-1143 and ASTM D-3966 for our deep foundation testing.
Despite the name, installing micropiles is no small task. As experienced deep foundation specialists, we’ll guide you through the process of determining what type of work you need, and how to go about getting it done. Whether you already have installation plans, or you are just trying to figure things out, Shore will work alongside you to help get your project done.
Micropiles can extend to depths of 200 feet, and achieve workloads of over 200 tons. Micropiles are used to transfer structural load through unsuitable soils. Thus, micropiles are a solution when Helical Piles or other deep foundation methods may not work.
Micropiles are good for environments where minimal vibration is required. It’s an ideal choice for urban environments. Also, due to their flexibility in size, range, and drilling methods, they can be used in ground conditions that could be considered more difficult for other deep foundations.
