Heavy foundations of Industrial structures and bridges

Foundation is interfacing element between the superstructure and the underlying soil or rock. The loads transmitted by the foundation to the underlying soil must not cause soil shear failure or damaging settlement of the superstructure.

Pile foundations are the part of a structure used to carry and transfer the load of the structure to the bearing ground located at some depth below ground surface. The main components of the foundation are the pile cap and the piles.These are frequently needed because of the relative inability of shallow footings to resist inclined, lateral, or uplift loads and overturning moments.They are used in areas of expansive or collapsible soils to resist undesirable seasonal movements of the foundations.ThePile capsare thick slabs used to tie a group of piles together to support and transmit column loads to the piles.

The raft foundations are preferred to minimize the differential settlement when soil bearing capacity is low, column loads are heavy, single footings cannot be used, piles are not used. Deep foundations can be used to transfer the loading to a deeper, more competent strata at depth if unsuitable soils are present near the surface. This is usually at depths >3 m below finished ground level.

The company has good expertisation in executing well sinking foundation, large diameter bored piles through all types of Strata including hard rock in major rivers.The company has successfully executed heavy foundation works for various structures of Satna Cement Plant, Civil work for 400KV switchyard for Power grid Corporation of India at Faridabad. The construction of 65m high fly ash silo over deep pile foundations is one of the examples of our proficiency in execution of typical foundations.

We have expertisation in designing foundations for the structures and also for foundation problems of retaining walls, bulkheads, cofferdams, tunnels, and earth dams, as well as the design of natural slopes, dewatering of soils, and stabilization of soils mechanically and chemically. The art of selecting, designing, and constructing the elements that transfer the weight of a structure to the underlying soil or rock is exercised in the right perspective by our highly qualified and experienced Engineers.
