Some of the uses for Helical Pier/Piles:
New Construction

Residential and Commercial

            

Notice the piers installed in each grade beam. These piers were installed to transfer the weight of the structure from the unsuitable top soil to solid strata below.

 


Foundation Repair

Residential and Commercial

Foundation repairs consist of a Helical Pier and a Foundation Repair Bracket. The Pier is turned into the soil, a repair bracket is used to attach the pier to the foundation. The structure is then supported and the weight is transferred to the bearing strata below.

 

Boardwalks/Walkways 

Environmentally Friendly Above Ground Trails

These walkways can be installed with little or no disruption to the environment. The installation process includes building a small section of the walkway, driving the equipment onto the newly installed section, and building the next section.  The process is continued until the walkway is complete. This is a green process ensuring that surrounding area and/or ground water are not disturbed or contaminated.  

I appreciate the work you and your crews did on that and the boardwalk-after almost 6 years of false starts and disappearing contractors it is a pleasure to deal with a professional outfit.- Jim Moore The Nature Conservancy

From foundation installation, to decking, bench construction, and railing.  Terra Contracting performed 100% of this installation.

Shoring and Soil Stabilization

Helical Piers are installed, wire mesh and/or rebar are installed tying to the Piering System. Shot-crete is sprayed onto the mesh or rebar matting and can be finished to a smooth face to be used as an outside form or can be finished and colored to look like surrounding rock faces. Helical Pier System can be easily withdrawn if the tie-backs are not allowed to remain in public right-of-ways or on private property as opposed to other systems.
