CNT Foundations provides the Charleston area with several new foundation construction services.

Helical Piles - A deep foundation solution that allows for construction in weak soil types and in limited access sites. Well known for their lack of noise and limited ground disturbance.

Helical Anchors & Tiebacks - Similar to helical piles, but are drilled into the ground at an angle, rather than straight down. They are designed to resist uplift tension from the attached object, such as a foundation wall.

Helical Pulldown Piles - Helical pulldown piles are helical piles that have been reinforced with a grout column along the shaft, allowing for greater load capacity while reducing friction from heaving and shifting soil.

Helical Micro Piles - With all the benefits of helical piles, helical micro piles are preferred for limited access sites that need a deep foundation solution.

Retaining Walls - An effective solution to keep soil from shifting and encroaching on your property, retaining walls need expert attention to prevent them from falling and failing.

Grade Beams - As a type of footer, grade beams are generally used on steep slopes, weak soil, expanding soil and other situations where a deep foundation system is needed.

Footings - Footings, also known as footers, are used to support foundations where surface soil is less than optimal for constructing a subsurface foundation. Generally built wider than the foundation, footings add strength to the foundation by evenly distributing the load on weaker soil.

Slabs - Concrete slabs for commercial construction often require a stronger mix and heavier reinforcement because of the increased structural load commercial spaces present.

CMU Piers - CMU piers are fire resistant with high durability.

CMU Walls - CMU walls are often used in commercial construction because they are available in several styles, their relative ease in installation and their fire-resistant nature. Concrete masonry units can be reinforced with rebar and layed to match the dimensions of your structure.

Cast in Place Concrete - The process of cast in place concrete allows for the on-site construction of concrete floors, walls, and roofs. Molds are used to make the dimensions of the structure while at the construction site.

Underpinning - A type of deep foundation solution that can be used when a structure is being expanded, such as adding a wing or story, which would result in the foundation no longer being able to support the structure. Usually achieved with helical piles or micro piles.

Remove and Replace Concrete - CNT Foundations can remove old or unwanted concrete from your commercial property. We take steps to ensure that your new concrete slab is level.
