What Are Caissons?

You may have only heard of caissons before in "The Caisson Song," which is the official song of the U.S. Army. ("Over hill, over dale, we will hit the dusty trail / As the caissons go rolling along…") You probably don’t know what caisson means there either. (It refers to a kind of ammo wagon.) However, in engineering, a caisson has a variety of meanings. The one we’re concerned with here is a concrete and steel bar foundation that goes into a deep hole in the ground that reaches to the bedrock. Caissons are designed to prevent the soil under a building from moving vertically and allowing the structure to settle and suffer from damage. Caissons are also useful for construction over or near water. Our contractors will know if your project will require caissons and how to drill to put them in place.

Installation of Pile Foundations

If you are building on unstable soil, you may need to have a pile foundation under the structure. A pile transfers the structural load to a required depth through the soft soil to a bearing stratum. Like caissons, piles are usually made of concrete with steel bars running through them. Piles are common in Los Angeles, CA for both residential and commercial buildings. Your engineers will know if piles are necessary for your construction project’s stability.
