Geopier Impact® system goes to Long Beach Featured

Written by

Geopier  is using the Impact® system to mitigate liquefaction settlement in the City of Long Beach for a nearly 200,000 square foot warehouse.

The Geopier Impact® system is designed to reinforce good to poor soils, including loose sand, soft silt and clay, mixed soil layers, uncontrolled fill, contaminated soils and soils below the groundwater table by using a patented displacement mandrel. The displacement process allows for installation with no spoils and eliminates the need for casing. Its performance and cost-effective qualities make it the ideal solution for soils that are subject to caving. The Geopier Impact system can be used for various soil and groundwater conditions, including deep treatment for liquefaction and expands RAP treatment depths to more than 40 feet.

If you have a project that is currently designed for a deep foundation system because of liquefaction settlement, reach out to your local Geopier representative ( for a value engineered alternative to save your project time and money.
