Load-bearing elements


Load-bearing elements are reinforced concrete foundation elements, to which struts are attached, made from concrete elements or integral prefabricated concrete piers or metal uprights.

Load-bearing elements can be straight, X-shaped, or H-shaped.

To lay load-bearing elements, boreholes are drilled using a cable-operated excavator, hydraulic excavator, or cutter. The upright or, as applicable, reinforcement can then be set up; the load-bearing element is then concreted using a tremie pipe.
