Micropiles and Anchors

Morris-Shea has extensive experience in the installation of drilled and driven micropiles for the enhancement of existing foundations and construction of new foundations. Our wide range of rigs can install high-capacity micropiles in the most challenging conditions and soil/rock profiles.

Micropiles can provide temporary or permanent stability and support in earth retention applications. Designed to withstand lateral and uplift forces, these structural members are typically used with temporary deep excavation support systems and for permanent retaining walls.

Micropile Installation Method

Morris-Shea excels at installing micropiles in challenging soil and rock conditions. Our in-house design and detailing capability facilitates optimization of micropile placement and loads to best meet the engineering requirements, structural performance, and soil conditions in specific environments.

Ground and tieback anchors can be used to provide temporary or permanent stability and support problems. Designed to withstand lateral and uplift forces, these structural members are typically used with temporary deep excavation support systems and for permanent retaining walls. Anchors can also be used for dam stabilization and to resist hydrostatic uplift and wind-produced forces.
