AUGERED CAST IN PLACE
CONCERNED ABOUT VIBRATIONS ON YOUR DEEP FOUNDATION PROJECT?
Auger cast-in-place (ACIP) piles can be installed to high capacities without vibration or hammer noise and with minimal disturbance to adjacent footings or structures. Piles are installed by rotating a continuous flight hollow-stem auger into the ground to the specified pile depth or until refusal criteria is satisfied. Piles typically vary from 12" to 20" diameter.
Grout is injected under pressure through the auger shaft as the auger is being withdrawn, in such a way as to exert a positive upward pressure on the earth filled auger flights as well as a lateral pressure on the soil surrounding the grout filled pile hole.
Macro has been installing ACIP piles for over 19 years on numerous projects ranging from few to many hundred piles.
