The versatility of helical screw piles is unparalleled in the world of deep foundations. For this reason we are often called upon to help customers out of tricky situations.
A great example is the project below where the design was revised but the foundation plan was not amended to accommodate the revisions, the result was concrete piles for teleposts which were several feet from where they needed to be. To compound the issue, the error was not noticed until the foundation was poured and the framing process was getting started.
Using extensions and reaching through floor joists, Postech’s Certified Installers were able to install screw piles to satisfy the design loads. The result was a solution that satisfied the timeline and that was a fraction of the cost when compared to traditional concrete piles.
