Mitigate Project Risk

Large capital projects have their share of risks. Those risks are multiplied when deep foundation construction is required. Excavation is the wrong time to discover the specified pile type or deep foundation system is not suitable for actual conditions.
As we revealed in a recent article in BIC Magazine, owners and general contractors can mitigate risks and reduce costs by including deep foundations specialists on the planning team. The deep foundations team can offer expertise in such areas as:
- Selecting the most constructable and economical deep foundation solution based on the project’s location, soil properties, resource requirements, and construction logistics
