Foundations

With support provided to foundation loads of up to and greater than 3,000 kips, Geopier systems provide significant increases in the allowable bearing pressure (up to 10,000 psf or more) and limit foundation settlement to project requirements, typically one inch or less.

Construction of Geopier ground improvement elements using vertical ramming energy results in friction angles of 50 degrees. This provides significantly improved design bearing pressures of 5,000 to 10,000 psf or more depending on soil conditions. The improved bearing pressure reduces footing sizes, saving time and money on your project. The vertical energy imparted during construction results in piers with exceptional stiffness to deliver documented, proven settlement performance. The combination of settlement performance and increased bearing pressures delivers substantial value to your project.
