Our Case Histories

Getz – Push Pile Foundation Underpinning

1950’s home in Edmonton that had evidence of foundation movement and settlement over the entire foundation. Prior repairs had been attempted by another contractor. The owner needed to have the foundation stabilized.  We assessed the pattern of settlement and put together an Engineered Plan for Underpinning Remediation using our Proprietary Steel Pipe Push Pile Technology.

PROJECT GOALS

  • Stabilize the exterior foundation walls
  • Repair all cracks, waterproof foundation and install weeping tile
 

PROJECT CHALLENGES

  • Removal of prior contractor installed remediation materials
  • Keeping project within client’s budget parameters
  • Prior contractors remediation attempts now presented obstacles that had to be dealt with
  • Piles required had very tight access.
  • Careful planning to maintain access for occupants was required for use and safety
 

OUR APPROACH

  • Soil bore holes were obtained, loads required were calculated, piles locations were engineered, piles were designed and a Building Permit was obtained.
  • Project was completed on schedule and on budget during winter months
  • We put together a detailed schedule for the project to manage and perform all work
  • All installed piles were installed, loaded and loads confirmed through a load testing process
  • A comprehensive Engineered Turnover Package was supplied to the client and required Engineer’s Compliance provided for the building permit and project

It’s no surprise that repairing a home’s foundation and all that comes with the project would be a stressful, messy and unpredicatable job. Kevin and his team took the time to ensure the job was done well and done right. Kevin communicated with us every step of the way and always told us the truth whether it was good news or not. Personally, feeling secure that someone is being truthful is a big deal for me when dealing in an area that is not my forte. I appreciated his candor.Read more
