Micropiles are small diameter piles consisting of a steel casing, centralized rebar, and cement grout. These piles are ideal in limited access environments and can achieve tension and compression capacities up to 200 tons.
Micropiles, also known as mini piles, are deep foundation elements that range in diameter between 5-12 inches. They are comprised of a steel casing, centralized steel rebar, and cement grout. Micropiles can achieve extremely high working loads up to 200 tons by transferring the structural load through the steel and grout which is then dispersed via skin friction to competent soil strata.
Micropiles can be installed in difficult ground conditions including karstic/limestone substrate. Micropiles are ideal for avoiding underground utilities, for installation in limited access/overhead areas, for underpinning existing structures and in new construction.
