Micropiles are small diameter piles which may consist of steel casing, steel reinforcement and grout to create high capacity piles with both a vertical and lateral capacity. Micropiles can be installed in limited access locations with little noise or vibration and in various ground conditions including obstructions and contaminated soils.
TBH designs and installs micropiles with diameters ranging from 3 to 12 inches and individual load capacities up to 200+ tons.
We specialize in difficult access applications with equipment that can be used in remote locations.
Micropile applications include: tower foundations, seismic retrofit, resisting uplift/dynamic loads, underpinning, limited access support and shoring. Other pile foundation systems installed by TBH include driven pipe and pin piles.
