A Geopier® Pioneer

Ground Improvement Engineering is the Midwest’s leader in designing ground improvement. Since our inception, we’ve been “Leading. By Design.”

More than 25 years ago we introduced a skeptical geotechnical engineering and structural engineering community to the very notion of ground improvement. Soon after, our company designed the first Geopier® application in the Midwest.

Today, more than 10,000 successful Geopier solutions later, we are the only company in the country devoted solely to designing ground improvement, including Rammed Aggregate Pier® (RAP) and Rigid Inclusion systems. We are dedicated to designing Geopier because, put simply, they give our clients a well-engineered, practical, cost-effective alternative to driven pile foundations and over-excavation/replacement.

'I have had the opportunity to recommend Geopier solutions and use them on many projects. They have provided my clients with a cost effective foundation alternative to sites with poor soil conditions for the anticipated loads. Benefits included the ability to use the same contractor that is building the building to install the footings thus not having to bring in a specialty contractor. Also, Geopiers can be installed in most any weather condition allowing clients to keep to a schedule and/or work in winter conditions.'
