Advantages

Cost

Time is money! Helical Piles take much less time to install than other deep foundation technologies. They can be installed in most weather conditions and through all four seasons of the year. This saves money and cost from delays that weather conditions can cause. They can be loaded immediately after installation. There is no cure time […]

Speed

Helical Piles are can be installed much faster that Caisson and other deep foundation technologies. Fast installation saves time and money. No curing time No weather delays Easy to work with More flexible and easy to correct or change At a rate of 15 RPM’s and an advancement of 3″ per revolution, a typical 30′ section […]

Size

Helical Piles use a much smaller working footprint than Caisson or Auger piles. They can be installed in limited access areas like existing buildings or sensitive environments. You can get your skid steer loader through a small entrance where the rig can’t get access. Helical Piles typically only require a skid steer loader to install compared […]

No Spoils

Installation produces no spoils to remove or remediate. Consider what is involved and impacted when spoils are an issue: Spoils increase the footprint of the work area because it needs to be stockpiled somewhere It needs to be loaded on trucks and hauled away which uses time, manpower and cost There is potential exposure to […]

Vibration and Noise

Helical Piles produce little to no vibration during installation. This decreases possible damage to existing structures from soil movement Vibration could damage things like older buildings, cracks in existing masonry, Windows, and is disturbing to anyone working or living nearby. There isn’t any pounding or drive pile noise that can be very annoying to anyone […]

Safety

There is no need for excavation. Specifically open-hole excavation. Open and deep holes present a number of safety issues that require special equipment, time and procedures and special training. There aren’t any large rigs used, so damage or accidents caused by hanging electrical wires is not an issue. Less equipment, materials and time on the […]
