Mapei Concrete Plant

A new mixing machine was being added to increase production at a Concrete Production Plant and needed to be supported on a deep foundation due to unstable soils and the vibration generated by the machine. 46 helical pipe piles with 43 new construction caps and 3 IDEAL counter-force underpinning brackets were installed to support the slab.
