We provide caisson drilling and also complete caisson placement. From difficult hillside engineering projects to limited access drilling jobs, to beachfront, we have the know how to efficiently handle all types of drilling and drilled caisson construction project.
Caissons are typically designed to support structures such as hillside foundations, retaining walls and swimming pools. Caissons are also frequently engineered to stabilize failing hillsides. The process begins with using a drill rig to drill through unstable surface soils in order to reach deeper bedrock to both support the weight of the structure and also to resist lateral movement. Once the holes are drilled to proper depth, steel rebar cages are placed into the drilled shaft with a crane and then it is filled with concrete. Typically grade beam foundations are placed over a grid of caissons or a retaining wall is built bearing on a grade beam that is tied directly to a row of caissons, usually between 8-10 feet apart.
Our drilling equipment is capable of drilling diameters from 12" to 72" and to depths of 95 feet. For jobs with limited access we need only 54" horizontal clearance and 8' vertical clearance. No matter how large or small your next caisson drilling and caisson placement project is, you'll benefit from having us on your team.
