Our Pier Drilling Services
Since the Southwest is primarily desert, the ground can be unstable and too soft in many areas to build strong structures upon it. Our services can create pillars to make your foundation capable of withstanding the weight and traffic of a busy building.
Our rigs can power through the ground with no issues. As such, we offer a variety of pier drilling services, including:
- Foundation Pier Building
- Utility Pier Building
- Substation Pier Building
- Commercial Drilling
The Pier Drilling Process
Pier drilling uses an auger to be able to drill deep into the ground. It’s mainly used to create piers and columns used to place a foundation and structure upon. This process is used for unstable ground that can’t support a structure on its own. Piers are built deep enough to be able to hit solid ground or bedrock, which can provide support to hold a structure above it. We see this fairly often in the El Paso region due to our desert landscape.
Foundations That Require Pier Drilling
We use this process when there are factors such as intense soil erosion or expansive soils, apparent uplifting focus in the soil, a weak and unstable topsoil layer, or horizontal forces acting against the foundation.
Sometimes, the circumstances of the drilling job require specialized equipment that can fit in tight, unforgiving areas. Some drilling has to take place in areas with low clearance or even indoors, which is where low-clearance specialized drills come into play.
Our drill fleet comes equipped with top-of-the-line low clearance drills to tackle those seemingly-impossible projects. We believe that nothing is impossible when it comes to drilling, and our low-clearance drills are pocket powerhouses that prove our point.
