What we do

Drilling and Foundations

May 2009, J-Track ventured into the drilling and foundation market with the acquisition of Schmidt Drilling.  Since this acquisition, what began as a small scale drilling operation has grown into an up-and-coming foundation contractor capable of virtually any type of foundation installation.
 
While J-Track’s drilling division core is centered on large diameter caisson installation, the expertise of the division’s key personnel has allowed J-Track to be competitive in the foundation market as a whole.  J-Track’s capabilities range from the aforementioned large diameter caissons (18” – 10’), to nearly every type of SOE (support of excavation).

 

A few examples of J-Track’s capabilities are:

  • Minipiles (e.g. helicals, hollow bar Titan, cased)
  • Auger Cast Piles
  • Tie-backs
  • Retention Wall (i.e. soldier piles)
  • Soil Nailing
  • Rock Anchors
  • Pressure Grouting
  • Tangent/Secant Walls
  • Down-the-Hole Hammer
  • Line Drilling
  • Rock Splitting
  • Dewatering Wells
  • Steel Sheeting
  • Slurry Walls
  • Pipe Piles
  • Jet Piles
  • Chemical Grouting

Currently, J-Track’s drilling division is working on projects in New York and New Jersey, and is bidding projects in other regions such as Philadelphia and Connecticut.  As the trend of drilled versus driven piles continues to grow, J-Track’s drilling division is poised to continue to grow and take advantage of this expanding market.
