Commercial and Residential Foundation Wall Stabilization
Piles using Helical Anchors
Helical Pile Systems are an extremely versatile new construction deep foundation alternative, used within grade beams supporting light residential wall loads or within pile caps supporting heavy commercial and industrial column loads. Helical piles can be installed with hand-held equipment, mini-excavators, skid steers, backhoes, or trackhoes, so the installation equipment can be sized for the project. Helical piles can also permanently stabilize sinking or settling foundations. The piles are mechanically advanced (“screwed”) into the ground to appropriate depths and capacities and heavy-duty, L-shaped steel foundation brackets are connected to the tops of the helical piles and installed against the footing. The weight of the existing structure is then carefully transferred from the unstable soils, through the piles, to competent soil or bedrock.
Helical Anchors for Retaining Walls
Helical Anchors (also referred to as tiebacks) provide lateral stability to foundation walls and retaining walls with unbalanced earth pressures. Helical anchors can be installed with hand-held equipment, mini-excavators, skid steers, backhoes, >trackhoes, or crane-supported rigs so the anchors can be installed in almost any application. This versatility, along with the ability to immediately load and test the anchors, make helicals a convenient and economical solution for a wide variety of projects.
