One of the geotechnical solutions we are happy to offer here at UMA Geotechnical Construction is our micropile foundations. Pin piles are useful in situations where access is limited. We use this solution for correcting structural settlement, providing support for excavations, and resisting uplift and dynamic loading. With our design loads of 3 to 500+ tons and a depth capacity of 200 feet and beyond, no project is too big or small for our contractors to handle. If your construction project requires a micropile foundation solution, contact our team today for a free quote!

Why Use A Pin Pile For Your Project?
Not sure if a pin pile is the right solution to your load-bearing problems? Check out the many benefits of micropiles below:
- Minimum vibration or other damage to foundation or subsoil
- Little headroom is needed near existing walls
- Provide high-load capacity at low total and permanent settlement
- Allow facility operations to be maintained during construction
- Resist compressive, tensile, and/or lateral loads
- Can be pre-loaded to working load before connecting to sensitive structures
- Uncomplicated and cost-effective connection to existing and new structures
- Can be installed through almost any ground condition, obstruction, foundation, or at any inclination.
All our pin piles can be installed quickly and in virtually any ground condition. That means we can quickly stabilize your project so you can continue focusing on your new build. Minipiles are the preferred foundation choice for challenging urban areas that feature mixed fills, nearby buildings, and difficult access.

Fast & Safe Micropile Installation Services for the Mid-Atlantic & Southeast
At UMA Geotechnical Construction, we are experts in micropile installations that will keep your foundation stable and long-lasting. If you are wondering if your project could benefit from a pin pile, see the most common uses of micropiles below:
- Provides extra support for structures during renovation
- Seismic retrofitting
- Support for structures affected by adjacent excavation, tunneling, or dewatering
- Micropile foundations where access, geology, or environment inhibit the use of other methods
- On-site reinforcement, including embankment, slope, and landslide stabilization.
- Replacement for deteriorating foundation systems
- An effective alternative to more traditional underpinning methods
- & more!
Our micropile installation process is simple yet effective. We start by drilling a 2-12 inch hole in the diameter of the bedrock. Then, the pin pile is bonded to the rock socket wall for load transfer. Grout is then pumped or press fed into the micropile casing, which is then lifted to the top of the bedrock to enable bonding to the bar. Finally, excess steel is cut from the top, and piles are capped to the engineer’s design. To make sure your micropile foundation is solid, a select number of them are load-tested before going further.
As you can see, we take our micropile installation very seriously. Go with a team that has been a trusted contractor throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast when you partner with UMA Geotechnical Construction. Fill out an online form to get in touch today!

Fred Smith Company
We’ve partnered on several interesting and unique state and municipal projects. In each case UMA has played a key role in helping us deliver excellence to project owners and the neighboring public. Their expertise in drilled foundations have played critical roles in completing projects successfully. We appreciate the relationship.
Catlin Engineers and Scientists
UMA responded very quickly to the needs of our project with the appropriate solution, and they provided the means and methods to implement that solution in a way that accommodated the complex site conditions.
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.
