New Construction Micropile Installation
Truckee Meadows Water Authority planned an addition to their Glendale Plant Office. A standard foundation was not accepted as an estimated 12′-16′ of uncontrolled fill consisting of cobbles and boulders was present. VersaGrade installed new construction micropiles through the fill layer into competent native material, improving the bearing capacity of the soils during installation. A high water table was present during installation that required a thickening of the micropile grout column for proper installation.
