Overview of deep foundation methods

Liebherr deep foundation machines can handle the entire range of deep foundation processes – from drilling, pile driving and slurry wall installation to soil improvement. These provide the optimum deep foundation for ambitious construction projects.


Drilling is used, among other things, to produce cast-in-place piles, to install precast concrete or steel elements or to loosen the building ground for subsequent pile driving work. Drilling methods in detail

Pile driving

Pile driving methods are used to insert elements such as piles or sheet pile walls into the ground. Thus, foundation piles or cut-off walls are produced. Pile driving methods in detail

Slurry wall installation

Slurry wall work creates panel-shaped excavations in the ground which are then filled with concrete. These elements serve, for instance, as foundation elements or cut-off walls. Slurry wall installation in detail

Soil improvement

Soil improvement methods are applied to improve the natural properties of the building ground by working the soil or adding binding agents. Soil improvement methods in detail
