Helical Piers Installed for Businesses & Commercial Properties Montgomery, AL
Helical piers are long, steel shafts that are threaded at one end like a screw. These geotechnical devices are typically used to provide support for buildings with sinking or settling foundations. Helical piers can also be used when a new building is being constructed in an area with weak soil, as they can provide additional support for the new foundation. Since 2006, Engineered Solutions of Georgia has provided helical pier installation and other structural support services to commercial clients throughout the Southeast. With more than 16 years of geotechnical experience, the ESOG team has extensive knowledge of the soil conditions in the Montgomery, AL, area and can help ensure that your building stands on a solid platform of support.
What Does Helical Pier Installation Entail
To start the process, the ESOG team inserts the helical piers into the soil around the foundation’s perimeter using a hydraulic drill attached to an excavator. We drive the piers into the earth until they attach firmly to a substrate that is sturdy enough to support the structure’s load capacity. Once the threaded portion of the pier is firmly anchored in the substrate, we attach the heads of the piers to the base of the structure, restricting its movement. We then fasten brackets to the base of the foundation walls, effectively transferring the weight of the structure to the helical piers and preventing further foundation settlement.
