Deep Foundations

ChromX® products perform especially well in subterranean geotechnical construction applications.

Using ChromX® in deep foundation applications can reduce the depth of concrete mat foundations, resulting in using less material including concrete and steel, as well as reduced labor cost due to less excavation being required.

 

Deep foundation examples include:

  • Basement Foundations
  • Buoyancy Rafts (Hollow Box Foundations)
  • Caissons Foundations
  • Cylinders
  • Drilled Shaft Foundations
  • Pile Foundations


The mat foundation example below demonstrates the design improvements made when using ChromX® Grade 100 material.
