When the geologic and geotechnical investigations conclude that sinkhole activity or ground settling is occurring at the site, the Engineer could recommend that helical piers be utilized to stabilize the structure to minimize and further subsidence damage.
C&N has the equipment and experience to install any size of helical pile under almost any condition. Areas of expansive soil, high or low water tables as well as areas with unstable soil are not a problem. Using helical piles allows for immediate loading and with a fraction of the time required to install unlike auger case or driven piles. With our range of equipment – from skid steers, to boom trucks and excavators, we are able to install helical piers in almost any working environment therefore areas with confined spaces or limited access are not a problem for C&N to access.
Continuous monitoring by C&N and the Engineering firms personnel during remediation is always done to verify compliance that these recommendations meet the necessary adjustments to the remediation programs. This will also allow the engineer who created the remedial design to certify that C&N’n remediation met the design specification after the professional stabilization is complete.
C&N proudly installs helicals manufactured by Patriot Foundation Systems.
