With the type of soil conditions found in and around the City of Champions, building a lasting and stable foundation for you project can be a challenge. Choosing helical piles to support the foundation of your project can be the answer. Engineered pilings are constructed with a hollow steel tube affixed with one or several helixes. These helical plates allow for a more effective bearing load capacity when soil can be problematic. During metal post installation, torque is monitored. If the instal

Advantages Fast Installation.
With little preparation or cleanup required Immediate load bearing capacity.
Unlike concrete footings, the screw-anchors can be loaded immediately after installation Minimal ground disturbance.
As the posts do not displace the soil during installation.
The ground in which they are put into is not disturbed leaving the soil more stable Load Capacity Verification.
During installation the torque is monitored and recorded.
This indicates the soil condition in which the pilings are installed and indicated how much weight the screw pile can hold Increase Load Capacity.
In the field if the required installation torque is not met, helical plates or piling extensions can be added.
Going deeper with extensions or adding helical plates can increase the torque to meet the engineering specifications No Frost Heaving.
As all metal posts are installed well below the frost line with the load bearing helical plate typically at the deepest point.
Screw piles are resistant to frost heaving No excavating.
Because the posts simply twist into the soil there is no requirement to dig or drill any holes.
This saves time and money There are several competitive advantages for using helical piers versus other systems, especially when working with an existing building.
Learn why so many engineers and builders require helical piers, and how they could help in your next project.
