What Are CHANCE® Helical Piles & Piers?
If versatility is what you’re after, our foundation construction technicians in Richmond offer CHANCE® Helical Piles & Piers which have the ability to be used for both compression and tension applications, making them great alternatives to deep foundation construction. Each section of the system is connected to another using bolted couplings, and the depth of an installation is limited only by the density of soil surrounding the foundation. Because CHANCE® helical piles and piers are a true helical share, they do not auger into the soil. Instead, they are “screwed” into the soil, and therefore cause only minimal disturbance. Helical plates are spaced at distances far enough apart that they function independently of one another, so the load capacity of any particular helix on the helical pile shaft is not influenced by the helix above or below it.
