Building a Stronger Foundation
Auger Cast Pile Installation by Bodax Foundations
When the Southern Florida construction industry needs a strong foundation for their project, they turn to Bodax Foundations. With more than three decades of experience, Bodax Foundations has extensive experience in the successful installation of auger cast piles.
Auger Cast Piles are often preferred for the quick and cost-effective method involved in their installation. In specific soil profiles, auger cast piles are considered to be a smart alternative to conventional high-capacity deep foundations.
Quick Installation, Strong Results
Auger cast piles are installed using a continuous flight hollow shaft auger. This auger is drilled into the soil to a specific depth or to the point where the auger can no longer penetrate, which is known as the point of refusal. Once the auger reaches the required depth, a strong specialized sand cement is pumped through the hollow shaft as the auger is slowly removed.
During the grout’s fluid state, our team installs a reinforcement cage, or it can be installed after grouting. If installed once grouting is completed, centralizers are used to achieve proper clearance.
The Benefits of Auger Cast Piles
In addition to their strength, the ‘one-step’ process makes auger cast piles extremely efficient to install. The characteristics of auger cast piles greatly reduce noise and vibrations that traditionally become issues for near and adjacent buildings.
Additionally, auger cast piles can be modified for size and length to meet various job location specifications and requirements, which means less waste in materials. Adjustments are easily accomplished with a quick replacement of guide and flighting devices with no need to change pile rigs.
A Cost-Effective Solution
When compared to other processes used for deep foundation installations, auger cast piles are a cost-efficient alternative. Their versatility in size and length, as well as their durability, make auger cast piles a smart choice.
