AugerCast Piles

augercast piles Pittsburgh PAMatthews Structural Solutions provides innovative and cost-effective methods to improve the efficiency of your foundation. One of our solutions includes augercast piles, also known as continuous flight augured (CFA) piles, to support buildings, bridges, and towers and for commercial foundation repair. Using a hollow steam auger with continuous flight, the auger is driven deep into the ground. The auger is slowly withdrawn, extracting soil while concrete is inserted into the hollow stem. When constructing a continuous pile, we carefully control the grout pressure and volume to avoid any defects. In the last installation process, steel is installed into the concrete. This method is designed to withstand compressive and lateral loads.

We know it is important to maintain proper quality control when installing augercast piles to avoid discontinuous concrete diameters over the length of the pile. That is why we use a recording system on our augercast pile projects to confirm drilling and grouting parameters during installation. Our structural contractors will help ensure that the project runs smoothly from conception to completion.
