Helical Pile Installation

An excellent example of a structure built on poor soil conditions.  Most of the structure was built on highly expansive clays, while other portions had bedrock directly under the footing.  VersaGrades solution was to isolate the entire foundation from the underlying soils and leave a void space under the footing to allow the clays to expand and contract without influencing the level structure.  Helical pile installations were put around the entire perimeter foundation and the interior was supported on adjustable girder jacks.  The foundation was then re-leveled and void form was installed beneath the footing to isolate the foundation from the swell pressures created by the expansive soils.
