Pacific Foundation is committed to using the highest quality equipment available, allowing us to minimize downtime and provide maximum efficiency. We have a world-class fleet of Bauer vertical drill rigs, Klemm Hydraulic Rotary drill rigs and as well as a large variety of specialty and support equipment including concrete trucks, bulk cement trucks and concrete boom pumps.  By owning all of the equipment needed for a given task, we are able to create symmetry in our operations and reduce our exposure to things that we can't control.

Design-Build Specialists

Pacific Foundation prides itself at finding unique solutions to project challenges, reducing both cost and risk for the project team.  We have in house professional engineers, BIM Masters, and access to the latest 3D modeling and structural engineerin software that allows us to be more responsive and provide a higher quality product than in the past when we used 3rd party engineering firms. 

These abililties were on display during the summer of 2019, when we were awarded the design and installation of a 9-city block shoring project.  Within 1.5 weeks of award, we had already designed and installed the first 125 soldier piles, a testament to responsive engineering, aggressive procurement, and very efficient drilling by our crews.

We believe that the greatest asset of a company is its people. If you have a passion for drilling and client satisfaction, we want to talk to you.

Work for The Best



Pacific Foundation is passionate about the safety of our people.  Matt Jannings, CHST, is the driving force behind a safety program that is different from so many others.  Instead of simply following rules or teaching regulations, Matt has developed a program where the primary goal is to teach our workers the reasons behind the regulations so that they can really understand the importance and buy in to the procedures that we have developed together. 

He also has a strong focus on leadership and everyone on the crew being accountable to each other, as it only takes one person to put everyone else at risk.  The results speak for themselves, as our EMR in 2018 dropped from a 0.71 to a 0.57, something that is nearly unheard of in our industry.
