Great Neck NY Residential

A new home in Great Neck New York was constructed on a hill overlooking Little Neck Bay. Due to weak soils and high loads for the large structure, a deep foundation was required.

Project Summary:

  • Helical Pile Type: 1.5″ Square Shaft with a 7″ Grout Column
  • # of Helical Piles: 45
  • Location: Great Neck, NY
  • Installation Depth: 28′
  • Ultimate Pile Capacity: 50 Kips
  • Equipment Used: Skid Steer, Digga 12ALS, Marian Torque Indicator
  • Challenge/Unique Aspect: The home and pool were constructed on the side of a hill, presenting mobilization and access issues. Helical Piles were installed with small equipment which could traverse the difficult site. No other deep foundation system could have met these site challanges without prohibitive expense.
