The contractor recently completed hand-held training with DANBRO to deal with extremely limited access situations. The hand-held, portable installation set up, consist of a footpetal, extendable resistance bar (to take the torque) and hydraulic hoses connected to a remote power source. A row home in Hoboken needed the foundation strengthened and reinforced so they could complete an addition. Segmented helical piles and the hand-held set-up were the only way to accomplish this task.

Project Summary:

  • Helical Pile Type: 1.5″ transitioning 2875.203 Wall Helical Piles
  • # of Helical Piles: 22
  • Location: Hoboken, NJ
  • Installation Depth: 20 Feet
  • Ultimate Pile Capacity: 30 Kips
  • Equipment Used: Hand Held Equipment
  • Challenge/Unique Aspect: The installer used a transition pile (1.5″ to square shaft to 2875 pipe) enabling them to reduce the load while making it safer, easier, and quicker to install these piles with the hand-held/portable installation set-up.
