In the complex world of construction, there are many techniques and methods to ensure the safety and stability of structures. One of the most pivotal among them is the process of Caisson Installation. At Coastline Engineering, we pride ourselves on being experts in this domain, ensuring that our client’s structures stand tall and secure for years to come.

Understanding Caisson Installation

Caisson drilling is more than just digging a hole in the ground; it’s a meticulous method of creating deep, cylindrical shafts or caissons in the ground for various engineering and construction tasks.

What are Caissons and Why Are They Essential?

At its core, caissons are typically made of reinforced concrete or steel. Their primary function is to provide foundation support for structures, be it soaring skyscrapers, long-span bridges, offshore platforms, or retaining walls.

When a building is erected, it exerts a significant amount of weight on its foundation. Not every layer of the earth is equipped to handle this pressure. That’s where the genius of the caisson installation steps in. The caissons transfer the load of the structure to more stable soil or rock layers deep underground, ensuring that the structure remains stable and secure.

Coastline’s Comprehensive Caisson Installation Service

1. Drilling

The first step in our caisson installation process is drilling. Using state-of-the-art equipment, our skilled professionals drill deep into the earth, ensuring precision and safety at every step.

2. Rebar Fabrication

Once drilling is completed, rebar fabrication begins. This step involves creating a steel framework that will be placed inside the caisson. The rebars provide added strength to the caisson, ensuring it can handle the weight of the structure.

3. Rebar Placement

Post fabrication, these rebars are meticulously placed within the drilled caissons, further fortifying its strength.

4. Concrete Placement

The final step involves pouring concrete into the caisson. Once set, you have a robust, durable foundation that’s built to last.
