Foundation Support Using Helical Piers
Helical piers in New England are used to support existing structures as well as to provide support for new construction. In compression they are used as footers and in tension they may be used to support retaining or foundation walls. Helical piers are essentially a large screw that is drilled into the earth to a specified depth by using a hydraulic motor on the back of a backhoe or skid steer. It’s a fast and easy way to install a foundation system. For all your helical piers Massachusetts needs, count on Atlas Systems of N.E.
A helical pile is a deep foundation support system used to support or resists any load or application in either compression (down), tension (up) or lateral (side). The helical pier is comprised of three elements. The pile is installed applying a torsion force to the pier via a hydraulic motor. The torque applied during installation when applied to an empirical conversion factor typically indicates ultimate capacity.
