Heavy Civil Construction

 

At Crowder, our Heavy Civil division specializes in providing heavy foundations. The structures above the surface must be anchored sufficiently in order to protect their integrity and stability. This is accomplished by transferring the weight of the load from the weak layers of topsoil to the stronger soil that is located below the surface. While the method used varies on the particular project, we typically utilize a variety of proven techniques. These can include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

  • Drilled Shafts
  • Steel Pile Installations with Tieback Systems
  • Mass Concrete Footings
  • Concrete Piles
  • Cofferdams
  • Caissons
  • Steel Piles
