Industry-Leading Solution for Your Grain Bin Systems

A Dynamic Combination of Practical Results and Quality Control

We’re here to help you maximize the storage capacity of any tank site. We have the time-tested techniques to increase bearing capacity and foundation performance of the soil for almost any worksite.

Ground Improvement Solutions for Grain Bin Systems

As increasing yields necessitate expansion in grain storage and drying capacity, CNC Foundations is here to ensure your grain system will stand for generations to come. As grain towers reach higher into the sky, the loads they place on the ground magnifies. If the soil beneath the bin is too compressible or has relatively low strength characteristics, it can spell disaster.

Worried about the conditions of your soil? Reach out to CNC Foundations today to learn more about our services. 

CNC Foundations offers a wide range of solutions to meet project demands and soil condition requirements, including: Aggregate Piers (also called Vibratory Stone Columns, VSCs, or aggregate piers), Vibratory Concrete Columns (VCCs), Controlled Modulus Columns (CMCs), and Auger Cast Piles. All of these products and solutions come with their pros and cons. You can rely on our team of qualified structural engineers to assess your situation and recommend the solutions that suit your requirements.

Aggregate Piers

For many soil conditions, the most cost-effective ground improvement solution for today’s agriculture industry is Aggregate Piers. Aggregate Piers are a ground improvement technique where dense columns of compacted stone are constructed to increase bearing pressures in areas of soft soils.

Additionally, Aggregate Piers are used to mitigate the settlement under structural footings. The aggregate piers are designed and installed in groups to improve the ground’s ability to support structures. CNC Foundations has the expertise to design and construct a cost-competitive ground improvement plan to significantly improve the bearing capacity and settlement performance of the site.

VCCs and CMCs

For projects with tighter settlement tolerance, Vibratory Concrete Columns (VCCs) or Controlled Modulus Columns (CMCs) can be used to improve the underlying soils.

VCCs and CMCs are forms of ground improvement similar to Vibratory Stone Columns (VSCs). The difference is that Concrete Columns are constructed more rigidly to further reduce the settlement characteristics of the underlying soil.As both CMCs and VCCs are more rigid, these systems will require a load transfer platform consisting of several feet of crushed stone in order to transfer the loads.
