Deep Foundation support systems are constructed to transfer structural loads through inadequate bearing soils to stronger soils or rock at greater depths below the surface. Foundation support systems are designed and constructed with consideration of axial and lateral load support, uplift force resistance, and settlement control.
Drill Tech Drilling & Shoring, Inc. designs and builds foundation support systems for various applications including new foundation construction, existing foundation retrofitting, and underpinning of existing structures. We routinely employ drilled shafts, micropiles, tiedown anchors, and augercast piles for these applications.

With over 25 years of experience in the design and construction of drilled shafts foundation, Drill Tech is an industry leader in the Western United States. Drill Tech’s fleet of vertical drilling equipment is capable of drilling holes up to 15 feet in diameter and 215 feet deep in most any ground condition.
Drilled shafts, also called caissons, and drilled piers are deep foundation members commonly referred to as CIDH piles (Cast-In-Drilled-Hole). Drilled shafts derive their load carrying capacity through both end-bearing (in competent material) and skin friction. Drilled shafts can also be used to resist heavy uplift forces or in poor soil conditions to resist lateral loads. Drilled shafts are formed by drilling a hole into the soil or rock, placing steel reinforcement (typically rebar cages or steel piles) and filling the hole with concrete. Drill Tech constructs drilled shafts for new foundation construction including bridges, highway overpasses, and buildings. For difficult drilling conditions Drill Tech is capable of utilizing casing and / or drilling and placing concrete under slurry.
