Florida's Deep Foundation Construction Experts
Deep foundation construction allows structural elements to reach underlying soils or rock, while bypassing loose or weak soils, and provide better structural support. Helicon's deep foundation construction team can work prior to the building of a structure as a pre-construction system, or as underpinning for existing buildings.
The process essentially includes drilling deep into the ground at specific points as determined by your assigned Project Manager. Then, our expertly trained team of geotechnical workers use the proper materials and methods to grout or fill the hole with reinforced concrete.
Deep Foundation Uses
Supports Both New or Existing Structures
Supports Stationary and Tectonic Loads
Supports Compressive, Soft, or Horizontal Loads
Deep Foundation Solutions- Piles & Piers
Helical pile installation is ideal for stabilizing existing structures that have been damaged due to settlement. The weight of a structure's load bearing walls is transferred off the weak soils and onto the helical piers.
Micropiles are combined with other techniques to ensure a solid, compact foundation allowing you peace of mind when building. Once the micropile is drilled into the ground, grout is pumped in, filling the hole.
Helicon’s push pier foundation system is made of steel and driven deep into the soil beneath a foundation to solve.
Deep Foundation Solutions- Displacement Piles & Shafts
Helicon’s displacement piles are bored, cast in-place, grouted piles installed by advancing our unique displacement tool into the ground with a drilling platform capable of applying high torque to the displacement tool.
Helicon’s process of inserting drilled shafts into the ground occurs when a building project or foundation repair job requires a deep foundation system.
