A home damaged in Super Storm Sandy needed to be lifted to meet FEMA’s new base line flood elevation.  Weak soils required a deep foundation. Limited overhead eliminated timber piles as an option.  Helicals are segmented piles installed in sections, thereby mitigating overhead access issues.

Project Summary:

  • Helical Pile Type: 1.5″ Square Shaft
  • # of Helical Piles: 33
  • Location: Gerritsen Beach, NY
  • Installation Depth: 35′ to 50′
  • Ultimate Pile Capacity: 20 kips & 50 kip ultimate
  • Equipment Used: Torq Hub, 6K drive head, Skid Steer
  • Challenge/Unique Aspect: Helical Piles utilize small installation equipment and are able to navigate between cribbing and mitigate overhead access issues simplifying a house lift.
