A view of the 2 inch holes drilled into the slab to allow for access of micropiles.
Displayed is a man portable drilling device, it weighs approximately 400 pounds and allows drilling in areas a conventional full sized piece of machinery will not.
The man portable drill utilizes hydraulics to function, which can be easily siphoned off a small man loader.
Depicted is our drilling foreman Robert Morton putting a soil nail into the footing to create the new floating foundation.
A home in the Lake Tahoe Basin had a garage whose footings were failing and causing the structure to slide down and off the mountain, we came in, core drilled through the existing slab of the garage and added micropiles to each of the footings to secure them deep into the earth and create essentially stilts that are both secure and long enought to properly transfer the load and inhibit future sliding.
