There are many advantages to pre-construction piles. Typically embedded in a footer, grade beam or concrete pad, pre-construction piles are a deep foundation system that is great for residential, commercial and industrial structures. A sustainable option, pre-construction piles help eliminate site-based issues. They allow for construction on land that has insufficient bearing capacity, composed of un-compacted fill material, construction requiring special foundations, or where strip footings are not an option.
These cost-effective pre-construction piles are a great alternative to deep foundation systems and many are made sustainable including products such as recycled American Steel allowing owners to obtain credits toward LEEDS compliancy.
