Project:

Dixie Anchoring System Steel Piers were installed to support two (2) new building additions. South Coast Helix Foundations, Inc. installed eighteen (18) helix steel piers using a Case 580 backhoe with a 10,000 ft-lb hydraulic drive head. The helix steel piers were required to carry between 7,000 to 30,000 lb loads. Each helix steel pier was a 1 ½" x 1 ½" rounded corner solid square steel shaft with a triple lead section consisting of an 8", 10" & 12" diameter bearing plates. The helix steel piers were advanced to depths ranging from twelve (12) to nineteen (19) feet. The top attachment brackets, for new construction (plate series), was then bolted to the top of the helix steel piers and will be cast into the concrete grade beams of the new foundations. The project was completed in just one (1) day!
