Title: The Case for Using Auger Cast Pile for Your Deep Foundation Needs

The Case for Using Auger Cast Pile for Your Deep
Foundation NeedsIf you are planning a building
project in an area with poor soil, or lack of a
solid underground base, you will need to utilize
one of the deep foundation techniques. Auger
cast pile is one of the techniques available to
engineers, a technique with a few strong
advantages.Driving Home a Point -The Method of
Deep Foundation People are Familiar WithHave you
ever listened to the repetitive hard hits on a
construction site as they relentlessly pound
piling in the ground? The noise can be
deafening, carrying long distances. The ground
trembles each time the piling is driven by the
pile driver deeper into the ground. This method
of creating a deep foundation is the one most
people notice and remember. They hope it is not
going to be taking place near their home or
business. Auger Cast Pile The Quiet and
Friendly Method The difference between using a
pile drive and the auger cast pile methods are
tremendous. The auger system drills a hole into
the ground to the required depth and then a
concrete pillar is poured into the hole. The
sound level is very low. The ground does not
tremble. Windows in nearby houses do not rattle
and shake. The residents in the area may not
even realize piles are being created.Seeing the
auger cast pile system in action it quite
amazing. You watch as the hole is drilled deeply
into the ground with the auger. Then when the
correct level of resistance or depth is reached
the concrete mixture is poured in around the
auger. The auger is slowly reversed out of the
drilled hole spinning on the way up. The
concrete continues to fill the hole. Once the
auger has been completely removed reinforcement
supports are inserted. The support lengths are
based upon design needs which were determined by
the engineers, architects, and construction firm.
The amazing thing about this entire process is
how it does not affect the surrounding
environment or disrupt neighbors.

A Flexible Method to Creating Your Deep
FoundationAuger cast piles has one other feature
which stands out. Depending on design needs you
can have piles created from as small as 12 inches
in diameter up to 30 inches in diameter. This
allows for creating a powerful foundation for
almost any project. It is hard to imagine a pile
driver attempting to drive a 30 inch
pile.Another flexibility feature is the ability
to add piles in a pre-existing structure. If you
have 7 feet of clearance you can have new piles
added to stabilize a foundation or to prepare for
new construction. Where trying to drive new
piles in an existing structure would likely lead
to cracked floors or other damage, the auger
method only requires adequate room to setup the
equipment and get the drilling started.Every
method of installing piles for deep foundations
has its place, but when you are working in areas
which require specialty piles, quiet, or new
interior piles, auger cast piles is one method to
consider. Auger cast pile is safe, stable, and
environmentally friendly.
