Resistance Piers (Push Piers)
 

Resistance Piers are used primarily to support and/or level existing structures.  The concept behind this system is that a hollow pipe is driven into the ground using a hydraulic ram.  A bracket is attached to the footing of the building and the ram uses the bracket and the resistance of the existing building as resistance to drive the pier into the ground.

You know that you have reached an adequate bearing depth for the pier when the structure begins to lift.  At that point the pier is capped and attached to the bracket.

Limited digging and no wait time to fully load the pier (unlike concrete underpinning methods which take time to cure)

The benefits of a push pier, resistance system include:

  • Fast installation

  • No shock or vibration

  • Economical

  • Field verified design load

  • Heavy equipment not required

  • Can be installed in confined spaces

  • Minimum disturbance to site.

  • Immediate loading.

  • All weather installation.

  • Applicable for saturated and/or contaminated soil conditions.

Concrete Underpinning

Conventional underpinning is the process of making small excavations under existing footings then filling the excavated area with concrete. Underpinning typically occurs:

  • When you are protecting the foundation from an adjacent excavation.

  • When the existing footing is deteriorated and failing.

  • When the bearing (soil) beneath the footing has eroded or sunk.

If it is necessary to reinforce or support the existing building during construction, no problem.  You can design a support system using steel, piers, or tieback anchors.
