Deep Foundations

Beaty Construction installs a range of deep foundations including driven steel or timber piles, augered cast-in-place piles, helical piers and micropiles.We can also provide design and testing services for the work we install.

Driven Piles

Driven piles are the most common and generally most cost-effective type of deep foundation. Beaty Construction installs driven steel structural shapes (W and HP shapes) and shell or pipe piles, as well as timber piling. These types of piles are generally installed using crane-mounted impact or vibratory hammers.

Augered Cast-in-Place Piles

Augered Cast-in-Place piles – also simply known as “augercast” piles – are concrete piles that are installed by drilling into the soil using a continuous auger with a hollow stem. When the auger reached the desired tip elevation, the tool is withdrawn as structural grout is pumped through the hollow stem. This method of construction permits concrete piles to be installed in soft, loose and wet soils without having to use casings – or producing large vibrations.

Helical Piers

Helical piers are steel elements consisting of solid or hollow posts with one or more levels of helical flights attached to the tip. This type of foundation is drilled in to the required depth, adding additional post sections as required. Since helical piers are entirely made of steel, they may be placed into service immediately. Unlike driven piles, the installation method does not produce large vibrations.

Micropiles

Micropiles are a specialty drilled-in foundation element generally used in very challenging situations requiring placement in limited space or unusual geometries. These elements are typically used to augment or replace the capacity of existing foundations.

Ground Anchors

Ground anchors are a special application of micropiles that are typically used to resist tension loads, usually for foundation or earth retention applications.
