Dutch Foundation (DF) is mainly
specialized in deep foundation piling and
associated works.The below presented solutions
describe the main services that DF offers. DF
offers a variety of other solutions that are
infrequently used in the area.
resources in addition to experienced engineers and
designers we are able to provide innovative
solutions to nonstandard deep foundation issues.
The many available types of piles and
associated construction methods are mainly used
for foundation load transfer and earth retention
They are used in marine-based
structures and in land-based structures where the
surface soil layers cannot provide the required
In all situations,
piles are utilized to transfer lateral, vertical
or a combination of both loads through weak soil
layers to a suitable bearing layer.
Retaining Walls (Shoring)
Retaining walls are structures
that hold back soil or rock from falling due to
landslides caused by gravity or erosion.
Watertight retaining walls (Cofferdams) are
employed in conjunction with an appropriate
dewatering scheme to hold back water and clay in
wet areas. In deep excavations, these walls have
to withstand great lateral earth pressures and
hydrostatic pressures caused by ground water. See
the retention wall systems that are used in the
list at the right.
