Soil Nailing Services to Reinforce Your Commercial Structure in Birmingham, AL
If your commercial property in Birmingham, AL was built on unstable or sloped ground, soil nailing from Engineered Solutions of Georgia may be the best solution to save your structure from additional damage. Soil nails are steel sinews that are cemented into the ground to help support loose soil and improve overall foundational strength. Large areas of slope or unsteady soil can cause major problems such as floor shifting or foundational cracking that can lead to costly damages in the future if not properly addressed from the start. Soil nailing will help to alleviate some of these problems and is effective for retaining walls, bridge or dam abutments, and many other structures.
Our soil nailing process begins with a comprehensive geological evaluation of the soil structure surrounding the foundation site. Once our geotechnical experts decide that soil nails are the best solution for your project, our team of highly trained workers starts by drilling holes deep into the ground. Then, the steel tendons are placed into the ground and tethered to the foundation of the structure. Once the cables are set in place, we pour cement into the pre-drilled holes to ensure that everything is secure, leaving your building’s foundation sturdier and more durable than before.
Our dedicated and experienced team of workers will work closely with our licensed structural engineer and your engineering team throughout the entire soil nailing process to make sure you receive dependable, long-lasting results for your business structure in Birmingham, Alabama.
