Looking for Foundation Reinforcement Services in Columbia, SC? End Your Search with Engineered Solutions
With continued geotechnical advances, there are now a variety of foundation reinforcement methods available for commercial structures such as dams, bridges, and warehouses. Here at Engineered Solutions, we have mastered all of these shoring techniques, and our foundation experts have proudly utilized them for customers throughout Columbia, South Carolina, and the surrounding areas.
The Engineered Solutions design-build team has years of experience providing foundation reinforcement for commercial structures of all sizes in the greater Columbia, SC, area. Due to the loosely packed soils found in the region, commercial structures are at risk of extensive and costly damage caused by sudden shifts in the ground or, in the worst-case scenarios, sinkholes. We employ the following foundation reinforcement techniques to help shore up structures in the area:
- Soil nails – Soil nailing is a popular shoring technique for structures built on sloped or unsteady ground, as well as with projects close to existing buildings. Long steel sinews are cemented into place to ensure the foundation is stable, preventing it from cracking or collapsing.
- Carbon fiber reinforcement – Our design-build team uses sheets of durable fiber-reinforced polymer to stabilize foundation walls. This ultramodern material can bear more weight than steel and other sturdy metals.
- Micropiles and helical piers – Any newly constructed structure will benefit from foundation reinforcement in the form of micropiles or helical piers. These strong elements can effectively – and safely – transfer the weight of a structure from unstable ground to more stable, load-bearing soil.
