Geothermal Piles

Structural piles can be converted to heat exchangers by adding closed loop piles attached to the reinforcing cage.  In cool weather the earths heat is collected through the pipe and used to heat the building.  In warm weather the process is reversed. 

Rebar Fabrication

  • Circular cages for piles
  • Panels for walls, footings, slab and mats

Value Engineering

  • We use our experience and expertise to provide alternate deep foundations and support of excavation systems (SOE). We collaborate with the project design team to provide the most efficient and economical deep foundations.

Quality Control

We self-perform Quality Control on our projects. Our drill rigs are equipped with the latest technology that provide our operators and engineers real-time drilling information to verify proper installation of deep foundation and ground improvement elements. 

Prior to or in the initial phase of production, we utilize the latest technology to verify our work.  Some examples are TIP (thermal integrity profiling) testing uncased drilled elements, utilizing strain gauges, obtaining grout samples, and grout volume calibration.

We obtain wet grab samples of soil mix walls, in-situ cast samples and cores.  The samples are sent to a laboratory for permeability testing, compressive strength including strain for calculating the modulus.
