Project Type: Industrial Underpinning
Location: Cushing, OK
Fuel tanks are very large and heavy. Over many years, the collapsible soil under the bearing ring of the exterior walls of the tank had settled. Intermountain Helical Piers was called to design the retro-fit the tank ring wall and raise the tank back to proper level. 2 1/2" Tube style Helical Piers were used to resolve the lateral movement when the tank was raised and waiting for structure repairs. Underpinning brackets were attached and hydraulically raised to insure proper level. The old ring wall was then removed and replaced with a new wall.
This project was very successful, resulting in significant time and money savings to the owner.
