Deep Foundations

Deep Foundations

Our team’s history and expertise in deep foundation systems is immensely valuable to our clients on general building, industrial, and utility projects. We collaborate with the project’s engineer of record up front to identify the best foundation solution to satisfy the structural specifications and yield the most economical and fastest installation schedule. Commerce installs deep foundations as both a prime and subcontractor to the region’s most respected general contractors. Because of our long history in deep foundation work, we maintain an extensive library of subsurface soil conditions and test pile data for much of the Philadelphia metropolitan region.

The Best in Foundation Equipment

We have the experience and the team needed to tackle the toughest land-based foundation projects, but we also have the equipment. Commerce invests in high-end foundation equipment needed to cost-effectively perform the most challenging work.

The highlight of our deep foundation equipment is the PVE 50 PR-FF Pile Driving Rig. This is a crawler machine, self-contained with hydraulic mast/leads and hammer capable of driving H-beam, pipe, and timber piles up to 68 feet in length with over 74,000 foot-pounds of energy. The PVE mobilizes quickly and works in very confined spaces such as among pipe racks, utilities, and overhead obstructions.
