About EBI

The Expander Body (EB) was initially developed in Sweden during the 1980s by Bo Skogberg and later evolved under the expertise of Mario H. Terceros in Bolivia, changing the way we think about foundations.

The EB technique is now considered to be a significant leap forward in foundation technical design. this new technology allows engineers to monitor the performance and improve outcomes and quality control. Savings can exceed 50% in time and cost.

To date, there have been hundreds of successful projects completed international utilizing EB

Eng. Mario Terceros H.

Eng. Terceros H. is a veteran geotechnical & foundation engineer with more than 35 year of experience in design and construction of special and deep foundation projects. He introduced the use of the Expander Body in South America during the decade of 1990’s and developed the new versions of the technology including the post grouting system. He introduced several new technologies of deep foundations construction in South America and developed the Toe Box device. He has extensive experience in sedimentary soils under the water table. He has participated in international projects as consultant. Is professor of graduate courses in Bolivian Universities.
