Our crew out at the commercial job site installing helical piers to stabilize the building.
The crew in the beginning stages of excavating for the piers.
The holes are dug, now time to install the piers.
The piers are driven deep in the ground past the unstable soils.
Our crew making sure the bracket and pier are securely in place.
Here you see a crew member get ready for the stabilization. This happens after all the piers are installed.
This commercial building had a foundation that was in need of stablization. The proper way to permanently stop the perimeter foundation settlement is to underpin the areas that are experiencing movement. Underpinning is the process of installing deep foundation elements called piles. Piles are engineered foundation supports that are driven down past the unstable soils and are then locked up into load bearing strata, which can support the loads that are transferred to them.
