Champion has the equipment and personnel to serve an array of customer needs, including engineering and design-build services for shoring and foundation systems. Our field crew is equally qualified and trained to handle a large variety of specialty drilling, and safety is always the number one priority. Our ability to adapt to the constraints of each jobsite allows us to deliver cost-effective solutions where access is limited.
Champion has years of experience in cast-in-drilled-hole (CIDH) pile construction, Champion has the expertise and equipment necessary to drill shafts in most any soil or rock condition. Champion has an array of machines that are ideal for job with access constraints, as well as rigs capable of deep foundation drilling. We have the ability to drill up to 6’ diameter shafts up to 110’ deep, and can reach out to difficult to reach piles with our Lo-Drils.
Champion has extensive experience in installing ground anchors for a number of applications. Tieback anchors and tiedown anchors consist of high tensile strength strands or bars placed either vertically or horizontally into drilled shafts. The strands or bars are grouted in place and stressed against a structural element such as a foundation or steel beam. We have an extensive tieback/tiedown resume that includes several projects in our area. Our in-house engineer can design tiebacks to suit a number of applications, and our experienced crews are capable of safely delivering high production. We offer several pieces of equipment to contend with different jobsite constraints, and can modify equipment to reach even the most difficult locations.
As more owners look to retrofit their buildings and structures for earthquake safety, Champion has become a leader in tight-access, low overhead micro-pile work. Similar to tiedowns in construction, micropiles are typically designed for compression or tension, and are used to reinforce existing or new foundations. We are able to get into tight basements and drill micropiles without disturbing overhead utilities or damaging existing concrete.
