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.


  • Stabilize the foundation of the apartment building


  • 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
  • Lift assemblies were attached to the brackets then 20 Ton jacks installed and all screw piles were loaded
  • Site was backfilled and cleaned up


It is terrific to see that your company’s motto of “Quality without Compromise” is more than just words… The job was completed ahead of schedule and the workers ensured that when they left, the yard looked just like it did when they arrive. Well, actually it looked better…

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done. After this past weekend’s deluge, our basement was left completely dry.

Abarent provided a 3-page, itemized list of the specific work to be done at each stage of the project, including descriptions of optional issues (including additional costs) that might arise during the work. The company president did the initial walk-through for their estimate and later went through it, line by line. He pointed out potential problems and things we had to prepare for during the work (extra cracks, concrete dust, effects on neighbors, etc.)… Repairing a foundation is a very traumatic event for any householder because all of your house investment is (literally!) in the air. If you have to do it, call Abarent. They are professional – we cannot recommend them highly enough.

We have had our fair share of unremarkable and even troublesome experiences with other contractors, so you guys were certainly a breath of fresh air. An honest contractor, bang on with the timeline, finished on time, within budget, your “nothing is too much trouble” attitude…and a job well done.
