new foundations

A condo project was proposed on a site that has flowing sand for the surrounding soil. With parking designed under the condo units, it was necessary to shore the surrounding foundation area. Permanent shoring was installed by Intermountain Helical Piers to protect the foundation and to reduce the horizontal pressure on the foundation walls. Shoring panels, developed for this type of soil and confined working area, were installed with solid bar tie-back helical piers loaded to 100,000 pounds. Three rows of panels were installed so the below ground parking could be constructed. The project then moved forward with conventional foundation systems at a tremendous cost savings to the owner.
