Geopier GeoConcrete® Columns in Spain Featured

Written by  Structural Administrator

Over 700 Geopier GeoConcrete® Columns rigid inclusion elements were installed to provide settlement control for four warehouses in Cadiz, Spain.

 

 

 

The GeoConcrete® Columns covered a combined slab area of over 80,000 sq ft. Settlements were controlled to less than 1 inch.

The GeoConcrete® Column System provides high capacity, rigid elements with superior levels of performance for foundation support and settlement control. This technology can provide an excellent alternative to deep foundations, including driven piles, drilled shafts or augered cast-in-place piles.

The construction begins by driving a closed system displacement mandrel, supplied with concrete, down to the dense bearing stratum. The mandrel is stroked up and down successively to build an expanded concrete base to optimize load transfer into the bearing layer.
