Failing slopes with the potential for catastrophic failure often require caissons constructed down below the slope failure into bedrock.
They are often constructed with grade beams or retainer walls to hold the slope and provide substantial stabilization benefits.
Foundation Technology has constructed residential caissons to a depth of 60 feet to stabilize a failing rear slope of a property. They are usually only specified in cases where hillside failure is eminent, or for hillside foundation support in new or settlement conditions.
