Foundation Pile

As of 2024, Foundation Pile, serving pile driving, drilled shafts, ground improvement, shoring, and design build services throughout southern California, Nevada, and Arizona, is now known as Foundation. Along with the company’s other two divisions, Foundation Pile has undergone a rebrand in which the name is the only change made to the division. This division will continue to operate as normal under its new name.

Diesel Impact

A time-tested and proven pile driving tool, diesel impact hammers deliver more force per square inch relative to hammer weight than other pile driving device. Diesel hammers can be used with almost any soil mechanics without compromising effectiveness.

Internal Impact

For low-overhead situations or where precision drilling/pile placement is required, our specialists utilize down-the-hole (DTH) hammers to help us get the job done in difficult or precise circumstances. Our specialists have extensive experience in precision pile placement and can offer knowledgeable solutions to tough problems.

Hydraulic Impact

Hydraulic hammers are considered a cleaner-air solution than diesel hammers but like all equipment, they are task-specific when it comes to determining the right hammer for the job. Foundation has an experienced and knowledgable team that will work closely with project managers to ensure the best tools and solutions are considered for the project.

Vibratory

Vibratory hammers are lighter, faster and quieter than other hammers and work well where noise is a concern to nearby homes and businesses. They can also be the proper hammer to use where there is limited overhead space. Our team uses high-quality vibro hammers to increase the efficiency of driving as well as removing piles.

Large Diameter Pipe Pile

Large diameter pipe piles are a great solution to reduce foundation quantities and schedule. Our knowledgeable and experienced engineers are able to identify and design a piling solution that is optimal for the load requirements as well as cost-effective.

Support of Excavation

Due to our in-house design capabilities, we understand that the selection of the correct shoring system has an effect on the project as a whole, and that the most cost-effective shoring system alone may not always produce the lowest cost to the project. That’s why we work closely with the project design team as well as excavation subcontractors to design the appropriate shoring system for the project’s requirements.
