Drilled Shafts

Drilled shafts or caissons consist of concrete and reinforcing steel.  This is typically the solution when high axial and/or lateral capacity or a rock socket are required for a foundation system.  Beaty has drilled shafts up to 108” diameter and can handle difficult soil conditions requiring cased shafts or slurry drilling.  Beaty’s drilling equipment fleet also offers the ability to drilled shafts with limited access and low headroom.
