Helical Micropile Foundation For Building Expansion In Victoria Bc Canada
Helical Micropile Foundation Project
A developer wanted to add a building expansion on a development near Downtown Victoria, BC. Neighbouring buildings bordered the project site closely and created a narrow work area.
The site for this project presented many challenges. The project site was narrow so the neighbouring buildings were in danger of damage. The solution needed to provide a reliable foundation without putting the surrounding structures at risk.
Our team designed and installed a foundation that used smaller equipment and grouted displacement piles. TerraCana was able to provide a pile-supported foundation with risk-free installation. The design used grouted displacement piles installed to a depth of 55 feet. We also encased the upper portion of the piles in PVC to prevent downdrag.
