Driven Pier Systems in the Greater Kansas City Area

Fields with (*) are required.

The driven pier system utilizes a high-strength, round steel tube and load transfer brackets to stabilize an existing foundation.

The foundation brackets are secured against existing footings and pier sections. Using hydraulics, these are then driven through the foundation brackets and into the soil below. By doing this, home and building owners can be sure that the combined structural weight and the contributing soil load will add resistance.

The pier sections are continuously driven until the ideal load-bearing stratum is achieved. From then on, the structure will either lift, or the target pressure/load is reached.

The overall weight of the entire structure is then transferred over to the unstable soil, foundation brackets, piers and to the firm load bearing the soil or bedrock.

Benefits of Using Push Piers

  • Portable equipment allows for easy installation in areas with limited access
  • Piers are individually load-tested during installation
  • End bearing pier does not rely on skin friction for capacity
  • Galvanized pier sections add corrosion protection
  • The factors of safety range from 1.5 to 3
