Deep Foundation Solutions Backed by Years of Experience

Delivering the Support You Need, When You Need It

All of our employees have years of experience in making the best recommendations for geotechnical construction. You can rely on our in-house training on each product with every installation technique.

Supplying Our Partners With Custom Deep Foundation Solutions

CNC Foundations provides custom foundational services for deep foundations. Deep foundation services transfer structural loads to competent soils or rock when shallow foundations are not feasible due to weak, compressible soils near the ground surface.

There are many reasons why our team might recommend deep foundation services over shallow foundations. It all depends on the structure you need to build, the kind of support you’ll need, the type of soil at shallow depth, and any site constraints you might have (such as property lines, building codes, or access restrictions). We can access factors like this during our preconstruction phase. We use this time to address any safety concerns and examine the limitations at the worksite.

Deep foundations are typically connected to the structure and can be built beforehand or attached as an underpinning element afterward. Deep foundations can be made from timber, steel, or concrete, and they can be constructed by driving piles into the ground or through excavation and drilling. If deep foundation solutions are not right for the requirements of your project, ask us about our ground improvement products and services.

Specialized Deep Foundation Solutions

Our team and equipment are prepared for multiple types of soil conditions with a wide range using these types of piles:

Helical Piles

Helical piles, sometimes referred to as anchors, piles, or screw piles, are often used to stabilize new or existing foundations. Helical piles essentially look like screws—they’re composed of one galvanized iron shaft with “fins” or helical bearing plates. These piles are then turned into the ground by a machine to the desired depth.

Micropiles

Micropile systems are an excellent for deep foundation solution because they don’t require any pre-drilling. As a result, they’re often used to repair existing foundations to create a stronger foundation system, rather than replacing a foundation. They’re also typically used to stabilize adjacent structures that could interfere with your project’s long-term stability.

Push Piers

Resistance piles — also known as push, pipe, or friction piers — are hydraulically driven systems that were initially created to address building settlement problems. These piles are “pushed” into the earth using hydraulic installation until they reach competent soil. Resistance piles are meant to underpin existing foundations or support new building load being added to an existing structure, and are most valuable when soil information is limited.
