An underground spring washed out the soil beneath a garage and driveway. Weight of cars caused the concrete slab to crack and settle. 8 helicals were installed to underpin the structure, while 6 new construction piles were installed to support the re-poured concrete slab.
Restricted access and environmental concerns (no fumes or exhaust were permitted) and the small size of the job drove the project to the use of the portable hand-held set up and helical piles.
