Commercial Foundation Solutions from Stable
We proudly offer our commercial foundation repair customers a number of different foundation solutions. Each product we use has been researched and tested for its strength and durability to ensure we are installing quality foundation repair products.
At Stable Foundations, we use the CHANCE® helical pier system provided by our trusted partner, Hubbell Power Systems, Inc. We have proudly been a long-time partner of Hubbell because they are known for their superior products and lifetime durability.
CHANCE® Helical Pier Installation Process
It is a segmented, deep foundation system with helical bearing plates welded to a central shaft. The load is transferred from the shaft to the soil through these bearing plates.
As a result of their true helical shape, they screw into the soil with minimal disturbance. The first section, called the Lead Section, contains the helical plates. The Lead Section can consist of one to four helices.
If required, additional helices can be added with the use of Helical Extensions. Plain Extensions are then added until the Lead Section penetrates the bearing strata and the necessary or appropriate torque is achieved.
Our team uses drilled piers for commercial foundation repair that involved cell tower foundations and smaller foundation projects.
Drilled Pier Installation Process
We start by attaching an auger to a drill machine. The auger is then rotated into the ground while removing dirt spoils.
Once the diameter and hole depth reaches the required size, steel cages are set in place. Finally, concrete is poured around the steel to the top of the piers specified grade elevation.
Design Build Earth Retention
Our design build earth retention is primarily used for earth shoring projects. We use Hubbell System Inc.’s “Soil Screw’ system, which includes a drilled pile and lagging with Hubbell System Inc.’s tiebacks.
Design Build Earth Retention Process
We work with local general contractors while reviewing the civil and structural plans, as well as the geotechnical reports, to come up with a structural wall to support the below-ground earth pressure. Once installed, workers can safely work in below-ground elevations.
