Desert Deep Foundations (DDF) was established in 2012 after a local family-owned pile driving and earth shoring general contractor ceased operations creating a vacuum in its place and new opportunities for DDF to be created. Workers from the former company joined our workforce and have remained employed ever since.

Many of our key people have worked together for decades. We enjoy a unique level of camaraderie and trust in our workforce. Our people take pride in their accomplishments and enjoy working together.

We have the experience and capability to tackle the largest piling and shoring projects, but are small enough to provide personal service and attention to every detail, on every project.

Desert Deep Foundations also enjoys a number of Industry and Business Affiliations.



Eric Hendriksen is the primary manager of the Company and is responsible for daily operations. Prior to the creation of Desert Deep Foundations, Eric worked as the project manager for a local general contractor. He was responsible for all aspects of piling and shoring operations including estimating and bidding projects, as well as contracting, managing and overseeing field operations, maintenance and shop management for an extensive fleet of trucks, cranes and other heavy equipment, and safety programs for the company. Prior to that time he was the company General Superintendent. His personal experience in the pile-driving field is unparalleled.


With 22 years of experience, Jody Perry leads the workforce of DDF as the Superintendent. He is a skilled leader that enjoys his career and takes a personal interest in the people he works with. Prior to joining DDF he worked with Eric Hendriksen at a small local contracting company. He started in the yard and worked his way onto a pile crew, became a crane operator, and then a manager over multiple crews. Jody is married with two children - a daughter and a son. He enjoys all types of outdoor recreation, particularly hunting and fishing, and going to the occasional classic car show.


We are a trusted organization by companies all over the country because of our flawless safety record. This has opened up opportunities for DDF to operate under the strictest of regulatory conditions and succeed. We are a trusted contractor within the oil industry and take pride and care in our work. At the end of the day we value our employees and the relationships we have built with our clients. Our company is a family and operates to protect the well being of each member while being responsible for the people we work for.
