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

Helical Piles

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

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.
