Unfortunately, occasionally a deep foundation installation goes awry. Casings can be lost, steel cages can rise, concrete can lack strength, or voids/defects can be discovered. Relying on our extensive experience in the interpretation and application of CSL, PIT and TIP integrity testing results, coupled with deep foundation design and construction methodology, FTG has designed, coordinated and helped implement the successful remediation of over 300 deep foundations for State Highway Departments, commercial developers and the US Army Corp of Engineers.
Foundation Test Group, Inc. is a recognized leader in the field of drilled shaft remediation. After reviewing the integrity, core or compressive strength test data to determine how the defect likely occurred, we develop a site plan to adjust placement techniques to prevent the reoccurrence of the defect on future foundations.
Next, our deep foundation and structural experts thoroughly analyze the drilled shaft design and the effect of the defect on drilled shaft performance. Working on a turnkey solution typically with the foundation or general contractor, FTG uses our expert analysis and recommendations to derive the most cost-effective solution to a complex problem. If an engineering analysis shows that a remedial solution is needed, we then help to guide the construction and inspection team through the actual field remediation design and implementation to return the foundation to the ablity to carry the required structural loads.
