Limited Access Drilling

Operate In Low-Clearance Areas With Limited Access Drilling

When your project requires operating in confined spaces and low-clearance areas, limited access drilling is a great solution. At UMA Geotechnical Construction, we have the equipment and experience needed to help with all your geotechnical needs. Whether you need help drilling a micropile or helical pier, we have you covered. With our extensive geotechnical knowledge and well-trained contractors, you can trust us to help with our limited access drilling needs. If you want more information, fill out an online form to get in touch with us today!

Install Micropiles in Tight Spaces

In spaces where access is restricted, pier drilling can help to save your project time and money. We normally suggest installing micropiles (2-5 inches in diameter) and minipiles( 6-12 inches in diameter). Both of these deep foundation solutions are cost-effective structural support options. With design loads of 3 to 500+ tons and a depth capacity of 200 feet and beyond, using micropiles created by pier drilling can save you time and money on your project. Limited access drilling is comparable to other more conventional deep foundation pile systems but can be drilled with a smaller diameter and include grouted friction piles.

Get The Structural Support You Need With Caisson Drilling

Caisson drilling is a popular solution for low-clearance areas like the basements of buildings and low headroom areas to provide structural support. Each micropile created through limited access drilling includes steel elements that are bonded into the bearing soil and rock. That means that your industrial, residential, or commercial project’s foundation is solid and unmovable. When you partner with UMA for your caisson drilling needs, you get a team that has extensive geotechnical knowledge for states up and down the East Coast. And, we make sure to train all our geotechnical contractors on a wide array of deep foundation solutions so our team can always be on hand to give advice on the structural support for your project. No matter if you need a team to operate limited access drilling rigs or a team that can fill a void in your foundation, our geotechnical engineers can do it all.

    City of Durham

    The City has worked on two larger projects with UMA. Both projects exceeded our expectations and were delivered on-time and on–budget. I would encourage anyone seeking soil and structure stabilization to consider UMA based on the successful projects they have delivered for the City of Durham.
