The builder found large amounts of uncontrolled fill during construction of this new home.
Micropiles are a solution for expansive soil and bedrock challenges.
Due to the large rocks and void spaces encountered at the new construction site of this Shawnee home, Thrasher recommended the installation of grouted micropiles. During the installation, it was determined that the voids in the ground needed to be filled with a flowable fill as well. Thrasher pumped the flowable fill below the ground under the footprint of this home to stabilize the soil and fill the voids.
The grouted micropile is one of the many types of piers installed by Thrasher.
Thrasher installed 21 grouted micropiles and pumped in 42 cubic yards of flowable fill in less than 1 week. This put the construction of this home back on schedule.
