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 wanted to make sure that it was known that the group of guys that worked on our house were very professional and very hard working. I had a few items to clean up in the basement when they arrived and the team was very accommodating while working around me instead of just packing up to head home. They rolled with the punches and made sure that the job was done right which I appreciated. They were a great group of guys and enjoyed having them here which is why I’ve recommended Helitech for at least 2 other jobs.
