Foundation installation

As our Geotechnical Construction Services has grown over the past 10 years, Wagman’s comprehensive solutions include performing drilled shaft installations (caissons) for both transportation and private projects.

Drilled shafts are deep foundations that are capable of bearing large loads with high lateral resistances. They are typically designed for bridges and large structures, and can provide an economical deep foundation solution due to the elimination of large numbers of piles and the associated concrete caps. Loads imposed upon drilled shafts can also utilize a combination of end bearing pressure and side friction to carry large capacities.

Our experienced crews are able to install drilled shafts utilizing the conventional (dry) method or the slurry (wet) method. Our project engineers can offer value engineering solutions to assist Owners and Construction Managers in reducing costs while accelerating project schedules.
