The patented system is a cost effective solution for supporting buildings
and structures in soft clay and organic soils.
Construction begins by inserting
a driving mandrel within the patented Armorpact sleeve and driving the sleeve
to the design depth. Aggregate is then placed within the confining sleeve and
compacted with the mandrel. Applied loads are supported by the densely compacted
aggregate that is laterally confined by the sleeve.
The Armorpact system creates strong and stiff Rammed Aggregate Pier® elements in weak soils and provides superior levels of performance for foundation settlement control and support at challenging sites.
