Auger Cast Pile & Steel Screw Pile - Drilled pile/pier solutions
- Serving California & West Coast
Auger Cast Pile (ACP), Drilled Displacement Pile (DDP), Ground Anchors (DGA), and Steel Screw Pile (SSP) are all drill/screw pile solutions with zero vibrations and low noise. Farrell looks to deep pile solutions to support heavy structures on deep soil and fill sites, where ground improvement may not be applicable.
Farrell has been providing drilled pile solutions in California since 2002. ACP, DGA, concrete pier, and Helical mini-piles have been utilized on a number of projects for seismic retrofit, foundation repair, new foundation settlement control, lateral resistance, and tension/hold-down resistance. When heavy loads need support and low noise and low vibrations are required, Drilled Pile Solutions answer need.
QUALITY Heavy crowd plus high pressure concrete injection is the key to quality.
STRENGTH ACP = 3,000 to 5,000 psi concrete plus heavy reinforcement for high seismic strength. Use single bar for Ground Anchor.
CAPACITY Injection of grout or concrete under high pressure provides soil improvement in loose and soft soil zones maximizing capacity. Individual steel reinforced ACP reach capacities of 100 to 500 kips ASD.
PROVEN FHWA cites auger cast piles as highway designers first choice foundation system for highway bridges and infrastructure in the USA. GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING CIRCULAR NO. 8 - Design and Construction of Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) Piles (2007).
SAVE $$ Cost effective materials, save time, reduce soil offhaul, and eliminate deep casing of sand. Use DDC at brownfields / contaminated soil sites.
FAST Installed in less time than driven piles with the same and often higher capacity.
