Keep Calm and Carry On (KCCO), according to Wikipedia was a phrase first used to raise moral of UK citizens in 1939 in the aftermath of mass air attacks on major cities. It has since become a motto for military personnel, various companies and now local Winnipeg home builders.
When coring holes for concrete poured piles a seemingly straight forward project can become a nightmare as those holes cave in with silt or sand. What do you do now? KCCO with Postech Winnipeg screw piles of course!
More and more these days, when Manitoba home builders come across problematic soil conditions, Postech Winnipeg comes to scene with an affordable and effective solution… heavy duty screw piles.
First invented in the 1830’s as a solution to providing lighthouses with a deep foundation in sand, helical screw piles are an attractive foundation solution for nearly any soil and they are a no brainer for problematic soils (sands, silts, marshy soil, etc.).
Check out the picture above of a recent project where holes cored for concrete were caving in. Instead of just filling the hole with concrete and carrying on (absolutely a terrible thing to do), this home builder made the right choice and had their engineer specify Postech screw piles which achieved the same capacities originally specified for the concrete piles.
If you care about your customers, don’t pour concrete when you know it’s not the right thing to do, call Stan at Postech Winnipeg and he will do everything he can to keep your project on-time and on-budget switching to a screw pile foundation solution that will work.
