The Geopier Impact® system is designed to reinforce inadequate soils, including loose sand, soft silt and clay, mixed soil layers, uncontrolled fill, contaminated soils and soils below the groundwater table. Using a displacement process, this system allows for installation with no spoils and eliminates the need for casing.
This system is available as a Rammed Aggregate Pier (RAP) option constructed with crushed aggregate or as a Rigid Inclusion (RI) option by adding grout to the installation process to support high foundation loads.
The Geopier Impact® system:
- Saves time and money by replacing deep foundations or over-excavation/ replacement
- Allows for the use of shallow spread foundations (4 to 10 ksf pressures)
- Allows for installation depth of 45+ feet (RAP and RI)
