Deep Foundations

Continuous Flight Auger Piles (ACIP Piles)

Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) drilling, also known as Augercast piles or ACIP, is a versatile piling technique used to construct robust foundation systems in a wide variety of ground conditions. Pacific Foundation brings unparalleled expertise in CFA drilling, with the ability to design solutions that are both cost-effective and technically superior.

Pacific Foundation specializes in a wide variety of deep foundation solutions. Watch the video to learn more! 

Augercast in place piles offer some distinct engineering and efficiency benefits. versus traditional drilled shaft methods including:

  1. Load-Bearing Capacity: CFA Piles provide remarkable load-bearing capacity, making them suitable for structures of various sizes and weights. They effectively transfer structural loads to deeper, more stable layers of soil or rock.
  2. Time and Cost Efficiency: The installation process for CFA Piles is efficient and rapid. With our specialized Bauer equipment vertical drill rigs, we can complete projects faster, reducing construction time and associated costs.
  3. Enhanced Structural Performance: CFA Piles ensure exceptional structural performance, as the continuous auger flight eliminates the possibility of pile segment separation. The result is a seamless, robust foundation capable of withstanding heavy loads and minimizing settlement issues.
  4. Versatility in Challenging Soil Conditions: CFA Piles are adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions, including soft and cohesive soils, as well as challenging ground conditions with cobbles, boulders, and groundwater. Our expertise enables us to customize CFA solutions to meet specific project requirements.

At Pacific Foundation, we utilize cutting-edge Bauer equipment vertical drill rigs for our CFA work. Bauer has a long-standing reputation for manufacturing high-quality, reliable equipment, making them an industry leader. By investing in the latest technology, tooling and the best teams of drillers in the Northwest, we’re able to efficiently deliver superior results for our clients.

Pacific Foundation has a proven track record of successful CFA Pile projects. Our team of skilled professionals possesses deep knowledge and expertise in designing and executing CFA solutions for diverse applications. We have successfully completed projects across different industries, working closely with clients to understand their specific requirements and deliver customized solutions to meet and exceed the unique requirements of each project.
