Drilled shafts, also called caissons and rock socketed drilled shafts, are typically high-capacity cast-in-place deep foundation elements. Their use as structural support has increased due to heightened lateral strength and seismic requirements for bridge foundations.
CDI has a wide range of drill systems to install any deep foundation element on your project. Relatively new developments in design and construction methods of shafts have provided considerably more economy to their use in all settings. In many instances, a single drilled shaft can replace a cluster of piles eliminating the need (and cost) for a pile cap.
Shoring and cofferdams are used to retain earth or water, to protect adjacent structures (buildings, bridge abutments, roadways), and to cut off ground water or contaminated soil when excavation is required.
