Apartments, Condominiums, Multi-Family

Geopier® systems are commonly used to treat challenging soil conditions for support of multifamily residential structures, including apartment buildings, townhomes, condos, and senior-living facilities. 

Our systems support everything from lightly loaded, stick-frame structures to heavily loaded, high-rise structures.  

We have experience supporting thousands of residential structures across the globe in all types of geologies.

Design Benefits

Geopier® systems provide excellent settlement control for all types of residential structures.  We help simplify the design process by allowing foundations and floor slabs to be designed as conventional spread footings and slabs-on-grade.  The pier reinforced soils allow for increased bearing pressures and limit total and differential settlements to meet the project requirements.  As an added benefit, our solutions can be installed in tight spaces next to adjacent structures, which is important in urban settings.

Scheudle Benefits

Geopier’s solutions are rapidly installed, which can help keep your projects ahead of schedule.  Most small jobs only take 1 to 2 days to complete!  As an added benefit, there is no need to wait for concrete to cure before constructing footings.  Foundations can be excavated and poured as soon as all the piers are installed.

Cost Benefits

Geopier® ground improvement systems provide significant cost savings, particularly for large projects.  Our foundation solutions are typically 20 to 50 percent cheaper than conventional foundation solutions (deep foundations and removal and replacement) and can also help save cost on foundations and slabs by reducing footing sizes and slab thicknesses.  Our systems produce minimal spoils which saves on earthwork and haul-off costs.  This is particularly important on environmentally impacted sites

Parking Garage

Many residential developments include a parking garage as part of the overall scope of work.  These structures are typically much heavier than the adjacent residential structures, but that is no problem for Geopier.  We will work with the project team to control settlement of the parking garage so that it can be integrated seamlessly into the overall design.
