Uncased Drilled Shafts

Drilled Shafts (also known as bored piles or caissons) have been used as deep foundations load bearing elements for over 100 years. They have been developed for the transfer of high loads and as a vibration less alternative to driven…

Cased Drilled Shafts

Cased Drilled Shafts are required when ground conditions are so unstable that drilled holes cannot safely be stabilized with drilling slurry or where loss of ground must be controlled. Casing can be temporary or permanent steel pipe which provides a…
