Specializing in proven, design-build, ground improvement support and deep foundation pile solutions, Farrell Design-Build, Inc. purchases a Liebherr LRB 23 at Conexpo 2023.

The California based deep foundation systems and services company will initially use the LRB 23 for full displacement soil improvement. Farrell Design-Build, Inc. also provides design-build excavation support solutions, foundation design peer review, and specialty ground improvement and pile design services.

Farrell Design-Build, Inc. chose the LRB 23 due to its high horse power, ease of transport, and versatility of use. Tom Farrell, MS-CE-GE, President and CEO of Farrell notes, “This is the best machine for vibrated stone columns and full displacement drilling.”

The company intends to use this machine to preform:

  • Auger Cast Pile & Drill Displacement Pile
  • Auger Cast Column & Drill Displacement Column
  • Compacted Aggregate Pier & Compacted Soil Column
  • Vibro Stone Column & Vibro Displacement Column
  • Rapid Impact Compaction & Rapid Vibro Compaction
  • Drill Pipe Piles, Micro Piles & Helical Piles

The LRB 23 is a compact piling and drilling rig that closes the gap between the LRB 16 and the long-proven LRB 355. The impressive engine output provides the machine with the necessary capacity for all common deep foundation work, such as Kelly drilling, double rotary drilling, full displacement equipment and continuous flight auger, as well as soil mixing and applications with a vibrator or hydraulic hammer.
