Drilco Services – Auger Cast Piles
Auger Cast in Place (ACIP) piles are constructed by rotating a hollow stem continuous flight auger into the soil to a designed depth. Concrete or grout is pumped through the hollow stem, maintaining static head pressure, to fill the cylindrical cavity created as the auger is slowly removed. The grout pressure and volume must be carefully controlled to construct a continuous pile without defects. The reinforcement cage is placed through the freshly placed concrete. Drilco, Inc. utilizes the newest and most state of the art equipment on the market.
