Ductile Iron Piles – not easily pushed around…

Ductile Iron Piles – not easily pushed around…

Ductile Iron Piles – not easily pushed around… When you need a deep foundation system to resist lateral forces, small diameter piles are not the first thing you think about. Yet, many projects that would benefit from small diameter, low-vibration piles (like Ductile Iron Piles, or DIPs) still require some degree […]

DuroTerra Dialogue: A low-vibration, driven piling system…

DuroTerra Dialogue: A low-vibration, driven piling system…

A low-vibration, driven piling system… Is that even possible? The industry often associates driven piles with the exact opposite. Therein lies the paradox of the TRM Ductile Iron Pile system. Ductile Iron Piles are installed with an excavator-mounted hydraulic breaker hammer (i.e. demolition hammer) that delivers direct percussion (impact) energy to […]

DuroTerra Dialogue: Too much Tension?!?! – Not for Ductile Iron Piles

DuroTerra Dialogue: Too much Tension?!?! – Not for Ductile Iron Piles

Too much Tension?!?! – Not for Ductile Iron Piles There’s so much tension in the world these days. No – we’re not talking about the tension caused by global pandemic stresses or political differences. We’re talking about the tension on foundations caused by increased seismic overturning loads, wind pressures, retaining wall […]

DuroTerra Dialogue: Micropiles Made Simple

DuroTerra Dialogue: Micropiles Made Simple

Micropiles Made Simple. Micropiles fill a niche in geotechnical construction to address sites with challenges including vibration concerns, overhead clearance restrictions and heavily-obstructed conditions. But you often hear words like complicated, expensive, slow, messy, dangerous associated with micropile installations. Did you know that Ductile Iron Piles (DIPs) are being used […]

DuroTerra Dialogue: Don’t get hung up on helical piles

DuroTerra Dialogue: Don’t get hung up on helical piles

Don’t get hung up on helical piles! Helical piles are used for underpinning of existing structures and for new construction of boardwalks and lightly loaded buildings. Like any piling system, there can be limitations that impact the overall benefit. We often hear these concerns from design professionals and contractors on projects utilizing […]

Ductile Iron Piles: A Higher-Capacity, Lower Risk Helical Pile Alternative

Ductile Iron Piles: A Higher-Capacity, Lower Risk Helical Pile Alternative

Are you thinking helical piles? Should you consider a Ductile Iron Pile alternative for higher capacity and reduced risk? Helical piles are a well-proven technology for underpinning of existing structures and are frequently used for new construction of lightly-loaded buildings with pile capacities typically less than 20 tons.  Like any […]

A Cost-Effective Micropile Alternative

A Cost-Effective Micropile Alternative

Working close to existing structures?  Constrained sites? Interior applications? Concerned about vibrations from foundation construction? These are all common reasons why project teams specify drilled micropiles for foundation support on projects.  Project teams also deal with the reality that drilled micropiles are often expensive and slow to install. A Drilled […]
