Micropiles are also commonly known as mini piles. Micropiles are typically used in areas with restricted access as they can be installed with smaller equipment than traditionally required for caissons or driven piles. The Anchor Group has an extensive fleet of micropile-capable equipment for various site access and ground conditions. We are able to install micropiles in only 8 feet of headroom.

The micropiles are less than 12″ (300 mm) in diameter and can he cased or uncased. Grout is injected or placed into the drilled hole and steel reinforcement is added to increase the load capacity of the unit. Generally, the first pile installed at a site is load tested to verify the assumed design values. The actual capacity established by the load is then used for the production anchors.
