A new building began to settle while under construction. 84 helical piles were installed to underpin the existing foundation on the section under construction. 50 new construction piles with caps were installed for the remainder of the project.
- Helical Pile Type: 2875″.203 Pipe Piles
- # of Helical Piles: 134
- Location: Roanoke, VA
- Installation Depth: 15′ – 20′
- Challenge/Unique Aspect: The GC and subs were able to continue to work around the pile installer due to the non-invasive nature of helicals utilizing small equipment which could easily relocate to another section of the building to accommodate the trades.
