Screw Piles Installed in Frozen Soil – Postech Winnipeg is your Winter Piling Connection

So you’ve got a building project and your waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting for the ground to thaw so you can “break ground”.  Why not get a jump on the building season so you can enjoy your new house, garage, dock, deck, etc. sooner than later?

“Because it’s expensive to heat and hoard concrete piles.” Which is true, but what if you could swap the headaches of concrete piles for the simplicity of heavy duty helical screw piles which can be installed in frozen soil?

Postech Winnipeg, like most piling companies slowed down once the snow started to fly, but unlike most piling companies it’s installers haven’t been sitting on their hands very much.  Below are a few recent winter projects completed by Postech Winnipeg.
