Benefits of Steel H Piles and Pipe Piles for Deep Foundations

A deep foundation is distinguished from shallow foundations by the depth they are embedded. There are many factors that contribute to why a geotechnical engineer would recommend a deep foundation over shallow, but the most common are, very large design loads, poor soils at shallow depth, and site constraints (tight property lines) that would prohibit shallow foundation construction. Driven piles are the most storied and trusted conventional deep foundations systems.

Steel H Piles and Pipe Piles offer design, installation, and cost benefits. Their defined isotropic material properties resist compressive, tensile, and lateral forces. They are readily available, made from 100% recycled content, and load ready; “A driven Pile is a Tested Pile”, unlike alternate insitu/cast-in-place systems.

When evaluating design, specification and performance of deep foundation systems, JD Fields has the resources to guide you and deliver the right material solution.

Prior to founding J D Fields & Company, Jerry Fields gained decades of experience in construction products and piling applications managing equipment rentals, material sales, and product operations. Coupled with his oil and gas experience, Jerry built a rock solid foundation of industry knowledge and relationships that allowed him and his partners to start the company in 1985. Incorporated in Houston, Texas, JDF quickly diversified into multiple construction markets and applications. Today, it is a premiere international source for natural gas pipe and piling products. Strategically positioned at the Port of Houston corridor, our flagship stocking facility has 40 acres of laydown area with steel processing and fabrication capabilities. We carry more than 50,000 tons of pipe and piling inventory throughout the states to serve North America, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and other international markets.
