Drilled Piers Services

At Hark Drilling, we specialize in providing deep foundation solutions tailored to meet the robust demands of modern construction. Our drilled piers service is a cornerstone of our expertise, ensuring that your projects stand firm against the challenges of subsurface conditions.

What Are Drilled Piers?

Drilled piers, also known as drilled caissons, drilled shafts, or simply piers, are deep foundation solutions used to transfer structural loads to stronger subsurface layers that are more capable of supporting significant weights. The process involves drilling a large diameter hole—typically larger than 24 inches—to a specified depth, followed by the installation of a rebar cage and the pouring of concrete to form a solid, enduring foundation.

Applications of Drilled Piers

Drilled piers provide crucial support for a variety of structures, including:

• Commercial and residential buildings

• Skyscrapers and towers

• Industrial support pads

• Infrastructure for power lines and billboards

• Anchors for above-ground structures

These foundations are particularly beneficial in areas where surface soils lack sufficient load-bearing capacity. By distributing weight deeper into the ground, drilled piers ensure stability and long-term reliability for your projects.
