Push piers also commonly referred to as resistance piers or hydraulically driven piers were developed from a growing need to address building settlement problems. Push pier systems utilize high-strength round steel tubing and a load transfer bracket to stabilize and/or lift settling foundations. The foundation bracket is secured against the existing footing or supporting member and pier sections are driven hydraulically into the soil below using the combined structure weight. Pier sections are continuously driven until a suitable load bearing is encountered from the resistance of the soil.
There are many reasons for which push piers have been considered the optimal solution for a foundation repair project such as:
- Optional lifting of the foundation
- Ease of installation
- Minor or no vibration caused during installation
- Load of structure can immediately be transferred after installation
- Load testing is easily verified
- They install well below active soils
- Soil boring logs are not necessary
- Piers are individually load-tested during installation
Push piers have been utilized for over 100 years for such applications such as:
- Foundation slabs
- Equipment support
- Power line structures
- Elevated walkways
- Retaining walls
