Grout Systems’ Augercast Piles are designed and installed to provide structural support for deep foundations.
Augercast piles are small diameter, cast-in-place deep foundation elements installed by drilling into the soil with a hollow stem, continuous flight auger to a specified depth. High-strength cement grout is then pumped under pressure through the hollow shaft as the auger is slowly withdrawn, leaving a continuous column of grout. Reinforcing steel can be installed while the grout is still fluid.
Augercast piles are a viable alternative to deep foundation solutions – they cause minimal vibration and noise and are well suited for in low noise settings and environmentally-sensitive areas. They are best suited for granular or incohesive soil and/or high water tables.
Advantages of Augercast Piles
- Rapid installation
- Minimal noise and vibration
- No casing required
- Available in diameters from 12 to 36 inches
- End-bearing or friction or a combination of both
- Installed in limited headroom spaces
- Evaluated by pile load tests
