  Soldier Beams can be installed without impact noise or vibration by using augered cast in place (ACIP) equipment.  A continuous flight hollow stem auger is advanced into the ground for the full length of the soldier pile.  A self-hardening slurry is pumped through the hollow stem as the auger is being with drawn to hold the hole open.  The soldier beam is lowered into the hole without any impact noise or vibration.  

    Using ACIP techniques as opposed to traditional drilling techniques will increase production in soldier pile installation saving owners/contractors time and money.


    Vibration Free Tangent Pile Wall

    Additional ACIP piles can be installed tangent to each other replacing the timber lagging boards between soldier piles.  The result is a continuous wall of grout piles constructed before excavation has begun.  Where appropriate, a tangent pile wall can be installed in lieu of underpinning.
