Piling and Foundations
Pacer Group is Western Canada’s leading provider of driven piles – one of the most cost effective deep foundation solutions in the industry.
Our diverse piling fleet includes mobile crane mounted, conventional crane mounted, and track mounted pile drivers that offer optimum efficiency in various types of construction. Most of our driven piling projects have been focused and used in deep foundations, while others are utilized in applications.
List of applications:
- Pipe (open-ended and/or closed-ended)
- Sheet pile (steel and concrete)
- Timber pile
- Pile-supported embankments
- Sound wall barriers
- Retaining walls
- Mooring structures
- Anchorage structures
A driven pile is a relatively long, slender column, installed to offer support or to resist forces. They are fabricated according to a unique set of structural specifications and shape and size requirements. This flexibility translates into lower material costs and eliminates site clean-up expenses. The piles can be physically inspected prior to and during installation. Their high structural strength allows them to be driven by modern hammers (impact hammering, vibrating or pushing into the earth) to increased working loads, thus leading to fewer piles required per project.
