Advansix 7″ Piles

A new containment tank was being built in a chemical refinery. The slab supporting the tank required a deep foundation. Helical piles respond to sensitive environments as they produce no spoils and are vibration-free. Most importantly, helicals are installed with small low-impact equipment so no plant shut downs or production interruptions were necessary to complete the project.
