Drilled shafts are construction sensitive foundations and require a thorough inspection. Drilled shafts are unlike driven piling, where capacity can be monitored with each blow of the hammer. For a drilled shaft to function as designed, it is critical that appropriate means and methods be used during construction. Our inspectors are certified through Federal & State Application Certification Programs. They ensure that proper construction and testing procedures are being followed. Meticulous installation records are kept providing the highest level of quality assurance and control.
To ensure shaft bottom cleanliness, our proprietary AFT-SID™ (AFT Shaft Inspection Device) system is available as a turn-key inspection service by our highly skilled technicians. Alternatively, we can provide the AFT-SIDTM as a rental system complete with training, or for purchase as a brand-new asset for your jobsite.
