The same people, same family values, same great service, and same value designs that we have provided for 34 years strong. Helitech CCD provides custom foundational services for deep foundations. Deep Foundation services transfer structural loads through to competent soils or rock when shallow foundations are not feasible due to weak, compressible soils near the ground surface. There are many reasons why our team might recommend deep foundation services over shallow foundations.
Ozark National – Big Springs River Case Study - CNC Foundations
Big Springs river pumps out over million gallons of water every day. That is enough to fill a major league baseball stadium in 30 hours. CNC Foundations is a specialty geotechnical design-build contractor. We specialize in micropile design and installation.
A shallow foundation is a type of building foundation that transfers building loads to the earth very near to the surface, rather than to a subsurface layer or a range of depths as does a deep foundation. Shallow foundations include spread footing foundations, mat-slab foundations, slab-on-grade foundations, pad foundations, rubble trench foundations and earthbag foundations. A spread footing foundation, which is common in residential buildings, has a wider bottom portion than the load-bearing foundation walls it supports. This wider part "spreads" the weight of the structure over more area for greater stability.
Settlement of the asphalt was observed in the area where the restaurant was to be constructed. Upon investigation of the soils inside the building footprint, it was determined that this area of the parking lot was at one time a construction debris pit. The debris pit, which extended almost the entire length and width of the building footprint, was found to reach depths of approximately 18 feet below grade. To prevent extensive settlement of the structure's foundation, a deep foundation system was required to transfer the building loads through the debris and into more competent load bearing strata. There were three types of helical piles installed for this project and each type was individually load tested prior to production pile installation.
