What do you do when you find yourself building on sand? You choose the same piling option they’ve been building lighthouses on since the 1800’s… helical screw piles. Screw piles perform in nearly all soils but they shine brightest in the sand, achieving excellent capacity in a soil that is nearly impossible to work with otherwise.
A recent customer chose Postech Winnipeg to install screw piles for a new home build in Garson, MB. the result was an affordable and effective piling system for the ICF (insulated concrete forms) foundation wall and wrap-around country style porch.
Not only was the contractor able to save some money using screw piles, they saved time! If time is money, then that’s two birds with one stone. See in the pictures below how the form work for the foundation was taking place at the same time that the screw piles were being installed.
