Ocean City House Lift

SJ Hauck House Movers was in the process of lifting a house in Ocean City New Jersey and needed to put a new concrete slab under the house. The engineers called for Chance Helical piles to support the new the process of lifting a house in concrete slab.

Project Summary:

  • Helical Pile Type: SS5
  • # of Helical Piles: 17
  • Location: Ocean City, NJ
  • Installation Depth: 20-25 ft
  • Equipment Used: Mini Skid steer, 6K Eskridge Drive Head, custom fabricated mounting bracket for working around crib packs
  • Challenge/Unique Aspect: Due to the low head room of roughly 9 feet an excavator could not fit under the house, a skid steer was used because of the lower overall height of the machine. Extra caution was taken when maneuvering the skid steer under the house so none of the wooden cribbing was hit and potentially move the house in the process.
