Considered the original standard at Foundation Services, the steel reinforced concrete piling system is engineered to provide structural support to new foundations in areas known to have unstable soil and expansive clay sub-soils.
This system consists of vertical piers that are constructed to a depth of 15' to 18', or to solid rock, and are installed at a maximum spacing of 9'. These piers are also referred to as auger cast piles since they are drilled with a large auger bit, typically 12" in diameter. Each pier is reinforced with two #5 rebar that are then tied to the footing rebar to provide a continuous connection between the pilings and the foundation. As required by the engineer or upon request from the owner or builder, additional depths and rebar designs are available.
