Featured Sites and Services

The select jobs sites highlighted below are some of the foundation support, soil stabilization and specialty grouting jobs we have done recently. We hope they will give insight and a better understanding of the scope and diversity of Rembco’s geotechnical services.



Foundation Micropiles



Austin Peay University, Clarksville, TN

Constructed a deep foundation system for The Governor′s new football stadium. The owner′s original plan consisted of 185 5.5" diameter micropiles. Rembco re-engineered the job and drew-up a plan that consisted of 120 micropiles of various diameter. This more sophisticated design reduced costs and shortened the construction time.
