Royale – Foundation Underpinning

A 3 – storey apartment building was experiencing settlement on the entire foundation.  The condominium group needed to have the foundation stabilized.  We assessed the pattern of settlement and put together an Engineered Plan for Underpinning Remediation using Screw Pile technology.

PROJECT GOALS

  • Stabilize the foundation of the apartment building

OUR APPROACH

  • Soils bore holes were done, loads required were calculated then piles were designed
  • We excavated all of the foundation walls down to the footing

  • Our SVL90 Kubotta with 20,000 foot-lb specialized drive head installed screw piles in sections to the required depth of 28 feet.

  • Underpinning pile brackets were attached to the top of the piles

  • Site was backfilled and cleaned up
