Morris-Shea installs state-of-the-art deep foundation systems, often as a design-build Value Engineered Alternate, for all possible soil profiles. We maintain the geotechnical expertise to evaluate the cost and technical limitations of all systems, as well as their impact on constructability and schedule issues.
Our team can provide a Value Engineered Alternate (VEA) to a project’s base bid design to improve production efficiency and lessen project expense. Our design-build alternates often offer higher capacity piles and reduce both the pile count and the amount of foundation concrete originally required.
A Morris-Shea value engineered redesign can offer significant savings and help to bring a project to completion on time and under budget.
The Morris-Shea team of construction professionals work with the industry’s foremost geotechnical engineers to test soil conditions and determine the most advantageous pile type for each project.
Morris-Shea also offers its own CPT capabilities and an archive of test results dating back to 1992 from which to establish the ideal VE foundation specification for your project.
