Micropiles were developed in Italy in the early 1950s in response to a need for new ways to support old buildings and monuments that had been damaged over time, particularly during World War II.
Micropiles are high-performance, high-capacity drilled deep foundation elements with a diameter of 5–12 inches and a working load of over 200 tonnes. They can be drilled to depths of 200 feet and have a diameter of 5–12 inches. High-strength steel casing, rebar, and grout make up micropiles. It’s utilised to support structures, improve mass stability, and transfer loads.
