Helical Pulldown Micropile
The proven and reliable system for correcting foundation problems.
The Helical Pier Foundation System offers a technically superior and cost efficient alternative to other remedial systems.
The concept operates on the principal of turning a helical (screw) pier into stable subsoil strata until the torque applied indicates that the necessary load capacity has been achieved. Adjustable brackets are then attached to the base of the foundation walls connecting the piers to the foundation.
The weight is then shifted to the piers allowing repositioning which retains any further movement.
This system, which is backed by over 80 years of structural engineering experience, contrasts with other methods which use the structure’s weight to force pipes and concrete cylinders down into the ground. Such costly and time consuming methods require extensive excavation which can disturb site features such as walkways and landscaping.
FASTER INSTALLATION THAN OTHER METHODS
LOWER COST FOR BOTH SYSTEM AND INSTALLATION
NO HEAVY EQUIPMENT REQUIRED
INSTALLS IN LIMITED ACCESS AREAS
RANGE OF DIAMETERS (15CM - 36CM)
RESISTANCE TO BUCKLING IN WEAK SURFACE SOILS
STIFFER PILE (DEFLECTS LESS AT A PARTICULAR LOAD)
ADDITIONAL CORROSION PROTECTION IN AGGRESSIVE SOILS
This is my first experience of Corecut and I would not hesitate in using them again……The General Foreman, Graham Macdonald even stated that he ‘wished that all sub-contractors would take a leaf out of Corecut’s book.
Winchburgh substantially complete and handed back on time. Really good result and I would like to pass on my thanks to you and your teams for helping achieve a real milestone for the project safely and on time.
I have witnessed some real dedication in the face of real adversity out there and I genuinely appreciate what everyone has contributed.
Thanks again, please pass on my thanks to your teams as it wouldn’t have been possible without their contributions.
Corecut have recently carried out some critical and difficult work on the above project. We can confirm that they have demonstrated the capabilities for working under pressure and in a safe and professional manner.
100 Days in Queen Street Tunnel
In helping to deliver the construction of the Queensferry Crossing across a six year period, Corecut undertook a comprehensive portfolio of services that spanned almost its entire range of innovative solutions.Read More
