About this Project
USH was contacted to provide an engineered design for helical piles in lieu of auger cast piles at this Chemical Plant. The helical piles were to support a failing rail bridge crossing inside the facility due to settlement of the existing deep foundation support. (16) 4.5” leads that transitioned to 8-5/8” diameter extensions 40’ in depth were installed safely and on schedule allowing the client to replace the bridge with minimal disruptions.
