Commercial Foundation Problems
Just like residential homes, Commerical buildings can expereince foundation issues. With our numerous years of expereince we have seen commeercial buildings needing foundation repair for a variety of reasons.
We have been called out to commercial buildings to look at structure movement caused by the following:
- Water main breaks and washouts
- New drains or water mains being installed under the structures
- Forklift and excessive weight on floors
- Massive voids (up to 3 feet!) under the structure's slab
- Poor soil conditions
We have also been apart of many New Construction Projects where our helical piles have been installed to support the structure. From movie sets to multi story hotels, we have been successful in supplying a solid foundation for all of them.
Not only do we repair existing commercial foundations and install piles for new construction, we also are able to utilize our helical piles to shore existing structures. The helical piles can be designed to shore existing structures both vertically and laterally for easy over excavating. These piles can either be left in place once they are no longer needed or they can be pulled back out. Really the choice and preference of the GC, Owner, and Engineer of Record.
