Bi-Directional Static Axial Deep Foundation Load Testing and Integrated Deep Foundation Services
Loadtest is the world leader and pioneer of bi-directional load testing and the exclusive global provider of the Osterberg Cell® (O-cell®), known internationally as the premier method of bi-directional load testing for bored piles and drilled shafts and other deep foundation elements. Through research and hard work, we have redefined the science of load testing around the world. No job is too large or too small to utilize the advantages of the O-cell. It can be used to isolate portions of a drilled shaft or pile for testing, or can be used to test multiple levels within the same pile. The O-cell can also be placed horizontally within the deep foundation element to test the lateral capacity – or stiffness – of its surrounding soil or rock. Loadtest has a strong presence around the world through key strategic international offices in London, Dubai, Singapore and multiple cities in the United States. O-cells can be installed in drilled shafts (bored piles), barrettes (LBEs), augercast piles (CFA, ACIP) and driven piles.
Loadtest is dedicated to advancing proven techniques and developing innovative new solutions within the deep foundation industry. Loadtest is pleased to provide a full suite of deep foundation services. In addition to bi-directional load testing, Loadtest offers traditional lateral and top down axial load testing, verification loading, sonic calipering, traditional integrity testing as well as thermal integrity profiling (TIP) and a variety of dynamic testing and analysis. We also proudly offer design-build and constructibility consulting, unique in the industry, based on our extensive global experience.
