Speed of Installation

A typical standard set of 10 piles can be installed in approximately a week. This significantly reduces project completion time, operational downtime and other routine disturbances at installation site.

Environmental Friendly and Sustainable

Helical piles are 'green'. By reversing the installation process, the piles can be decommissioned and reused leaving a Greenfield site.


Helical piles can be tailor based on ground conditions from cohesive to cohesionless soils or a combination of both. Unforeseen variability to soil conditions can be overcome by the addition of helical piles and extension sections.

Depth Advantages

Variability in penetration depth is achievable by additional pile extensions.

Instant Loading

Loads may be immediately applied with no cure time.

Verification of Load Capacity

A direct in-line torque measuring device is used to measure the installation torque as the pile advances into the ground. By monitoring installation torque, the required load capacity can be developed by going deeper into better soil. Installation torque is used as part of the allowable termination criteria as of the project specifications.

Installation on A Batter

Helical piles can be installed at any orientation to suit the project specifications. To provide additional resistance for lateral loading, helical piles can easily be installed on a batter.

Installation Conditions

In residential projects, where helical piles are used for underpinning purposes, only a shallow excavation to expose the footer is required. This speeds up construction and significantly reduces cost.

Limited Access and Remote Locations

Low headroom spaces, such as inside existing structures, may be a difficult area for construction access. Helical piles are fabricated as modular systems, consisting of lead sections and extension sections, this allows for installation at limited access situations and low headroom space areas.

Minimum Site Disturbances

Relative to other types of construction activity involving the installation of driven piles, drilled shafts or other anchoring systems, the installation of helical piles and produces little to no disturbance of the site. An additional advantage is the low noise level associated with installation. Since helical piles have a small work footprint they also produce minimal disruption to adjacent structures. In cases of retrofitting or restoration, existing structures can often still be used while helical piles are being installed.
