Micropiles, also known as minipiles, are constructed using high-strength, small-diameter steel casing or threaded bar. While usually used for underpinning or strengthening the foundation of an existing building or structure, Micropiles can also be installed to help create foundations for highways, bridges, and more. They are especially useful at sites with complicated or restricted access or environmental sensitivity issues.
This system is often favored because of its versatility. Depending on the type of soil or the construction of the building being repaired, many other support systems may end up falling short. When faced with a situation like this, micropiles offer a cost-effective option capable of passing through any obstructions to hit the more stable bedrock.
