They serve as an underpinning method to stabilize and restore foundations damaged by expansive soils, erosion or poorly compacted fill soils.

Installed laterally as tie-backs or anchors, they are used for shoring in new construction, stabilizing slopes, and to stabilize and restore walls that have been improperly constructed or damaged by poor drainage or expansive soils.

Atlas Pier Systems can be installed in either an interior or exterior location. Every Atlas Pier System provides for a two-stage system of initially driving the manufactured piers to load bearing support, then using hydraulics, restoring the structure to the desired elevation.

Atlas Piers not only stop settlement, but also raise the structures, closing cracks and correcting other structural flaws caused by settlement and/or ground movement.
