Micropiles

Utilized in both new construction and during repairs, micropiles transfer the load of a structure to a lower, more stable, strata of soil.  Also used to overcome uplift forces in such applications as solar farms, wind farms, and large span buildings, micropiles (or mini-piles) allow a cost effective solution to achieve structural integrity when the soil itself will provide for it.   The design loads can be calculated for most situations to maximize the efficiency of construction to provide for light loads to stabilize equipment such as solar panels or emergency generators, to heavy loads such as a water treatment plant reservoirs, factory floors requiring tolerances in the thousandsths to allow for technical manufacturing processes, and multi-story buildings.  Depths and diameters vary with the required loads and soil types based upon the adhesion values and tip capacity of the soils.


Emergency Response

We never know when a natural or man-made emergency will occur. Vertical Earth can mobilize quickly to provide life-safety solutions, as well as stabilize and prevent loss of property or improvements. Landslides, rock slides, slope failures, sink holes, foundation failures, retaining wall failures, erosion, pipe and culvert failures, tornado and hurricane damage, and many other catastrophic events require that action be taken quickly to prevent further loss, as well as to allow life to return to normal as quickly as possible. Municipalities, school districts, state governments, large corporations, utility providers, multi-family developers, and others have relied on Vertical Earth's quick response time coupled with our Experience and Flexibility to provide solutions. With just a phone call, a manager with the authority to make decisions will be on your site, with equipment and manpower, within a matter of hours.
