(VIDEO) Micropile Installation

EBS has installed over 15,700 micropiles on over 120 projects. A micropile is a small diameter (305mm or less) friction pile that is bored or drilled and can be installed at an angle to accommodate axial and lateral loads. Micropiles may be cased or uncased depending on soil conditions and application. They can be installed in soil, rock, cobbles and boulders, through man-made obstructions or in areas with high water tables to depths in excess of 60 metres (200 ft.)
