foundation drilling
Explanation:
What is foundation drilling?

Most commercial buildings have piers under the foundation. A pier is a drilled shaft varying in diameter and depth. Depending on the size of the structure, there could be as many as 100 drilled piers or as few as one. After the pier hole is drilled, it is filled with concrete. Pier drilling is used for certain structures, houses and buildings to help minimize structural damage done by ground shifting or ground settling. Pier drilling can also be used for bridges and overpasses, fence posts, boat ramps and sign posts.
