Foundation Repair in Ladue

Location: Ladue, MO

Job Type:

Overview:

 A new Squash court addition was being added to this residence. The lower elevation of the squash court was approximately 15 ft. below the existing footing elevation of the residence.

Problem:

As the result of the excavation involved to construct the addition and the code clearance requirements involved, Helitech constructed a temporary shotcrete wall to retain the vertical cut. Sheet piling was not an option, due to the impact it would have induced upon the residence, and timber/lag retention system was not an economical solution.

Solution:

Helitech installed (10) ten A.B. Chance Helical Piers to support the North & West foundation walls. Helitech then transferred loads of the structure to the piers, which reduced surcharge loading of the soil. Piers were installed to 30-50 Kip capacities and consisted of an 8-10-12 in. diameter helix configuration. Piers reached load capacities at 20-30 ft. depths.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the job your team did with our project.

We initially contracted with Woods Basement Systems to solve our issues. After a year and numerous attempts to get the job completed it was not! I reached out to them many times and finally figured out they didn’t want my business. So I emailed your company. Your sales rep assessed the project and we contracted the job on 6/11/17. The job was completed today, 7/24/17.

We were pleased with the sales rep, Chris Watson. He was professional and courteous. I texted him several times and he always responded in a timely manner. The leveling crew, Dean and Cory, were fantastic! They were friendly, informative, and both were professional. They worked diligently to complete the job. I will recommend your company to everyone based on this experience. The only regret I have is not contacting Helitech first! If I had the job would’ve been completed a year ago…lesson learned!
