Dewatering is one of the techniques that is relatively new to Keller. It is a technique that utilizes wells and wellpoints to draw water from the ground and in doing so, lower the water table to permit excavation “in the dry”. Dewatering is very complimentary to other Keller services such as earth retention / support of excavation.
Driven piles are deep foundation elements installed using impact or vibration hammers to a design depth or resistance. They are likely the oldest of deep foundation methods, dating back thousands of years. In present day, they are commonly used for structural support as well as earth retention.
This presentation will review the technique basics, general engineering principals and operational details of these techniques.
Keller North America provides a wide range of geotechnical engineering and construction services to improve soils in-place and to both construct new and to rehabilitate foundations. The techniques that will be discussed include Compaction & Jet Grouting, Embankment Stabilization & Excavation Support, Vibro Compaction & Replacement, Micropiles and Pile Driving. Within our range of services, a Ground Modification solution is generally available for the toughest subsurface conditions.
