HELICAL PIERS FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION
Every new construction project needs a strong foundation. Even if you are building on ground that is stable, it is a good idea to reinforce the foundation to prevent sinking.
When you need added support for your structure’s foundation, using helical piles from CNT is one of the strongest and most easily installed options available. Unlike concrete, which settles and breaks over time, helical piles are driven deep into the earth for a solid foundation that won’t sink.
CONCRETE FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION
A firm foundation, including properly installed footings of adequate size to support the structure, is essential to the satisfactory performance of buildings. Foundation systems are often classified as shallow or deep foundations, depending on the depth of the load-transfer member below the super-structure and the type of transfer load mechanism. The required foundation system depends on the strength and compressibility of the site soils, the proposed loading conditions, and the project performance criteria.
Foundation designs are based on the assumed bearing capacity of the soil at the building site. In construction sites where settlement is not a problem, shallow foundations provide the most economical foundation systems. Shallow foundation construction is typically utilized for most residential and light commercial raised floor building sites.
