The original Geopier® system was developed in 1989 as an efficient and cost-effective Intermediate Foundation® solution for the support of settlement sensitive structures.
Reinforce good to poor soils, including soft to stiff clay and silt, loose to dense sand, organic silt and peat, and variable, uncontrolled ﬁll.
The Geopier X1® system creates Rammed Aggregate Pier® (RAP) elements using a vertical ramming process which is a combination of both replacement and displacement methods.
The process allows for construction ﬂexibility and the ability to construct through caving zones that are encountered during drilling operations.
The Geopier Impact® system creates Rammed Aggregate Pier® (RAP) elements using a patented vertical ramming process.
Reinforce good to poor soils, including loose sand, soft silt and clay, mixed soil layers, uncontrolled ﬁll, contaminated soils and soils below the groundwater table.
