Deep Foundation Systems

August 21st, 2015 by

A deep foundation system is a means by which the weight of a structure or object is transferred to a bearing soil strata much deeper than the existing grade.  The reason for a deep foundation is to transfer the load to an area where moisture change and settlement occurs less, providing a more stable foundation.  There are many types of deep foundation systems, each one designed to overcome specific soil conditions.
