A new home was constructed on the eastern shore of Long Island. Driven piles were ruled out due to sensitivity to neighboring properties near the site. Helical piles were specified as the deep foundation to eliminate vibration and spoils.

- Installation Depth: 25′
- Ultimate Pile Capacity: 65 Kips
- Equipment Used: Takeuchi TB245 Excavator, DIGGA MM10K Drive, Marian Torque Indicator
