Moretrench specializes in design-build solutions for a wide range of subsurface conditions. Initially founded in 1891 as a trenching contractor, the company has grown and diversified over the years to become one of North America’s most respected geotechnical contractors with a reputation for superior client service, product excellence, and the ability to resolve even the most complex underground challenges.

Each of Moretrench’s primary services encompasses several methodologies.  Deep foundations include drilled shafts (caissons), standard micropiles, hollow bar micropiles, auger cast piles, and drilled displacement piles. Earth retention services include beam and lagging excavation support, soil nailing, and secant piles. Underpinning/settlement control services include micropiles, the conventional concrete pit method, bracket and helical piles, and jet, permeation, compaction and compensation grouting.  Moretrench is also the nation’s foremost dewatering contractor and has been a leader in ground freezing for more than 40 years.  This range of options, coupled with deep engineering experience across all of our disciplines, allows us to provide the optimum solution to the problem, tailored to site-specific conditions and project objectives, and also to combine services under a turnkey contract.

As a 100% employee-owned (ESOP) company, Moretrench benefits from a collective commitment to providing every client with the right solution or solutions, delivered on time and with the highest degree of attention to detail and safety, no matter the size of the project.  This commitment is reflected in a high level of repeat clients for whom Moretrench is the company of choice for all their geotechnical needs.
