Job - Brighton, Victoria
The client had approached Helical Systems to Screw Pile underpin various sections of an existing structure, the client did not want to use any other types of underpinning methods. The property was being upgraded during renovations to take additional loads on the 2nd floor. A soil test identified the depth of the GroundScrew and the installation locations. Areas of the subfloor masonry walling had been punched through to make way for air conditioning ducting, that had left the structure compromised. The brickwork was repaired and HeliTies Bars were installed in the form of a Masonry Beam that spread the load through the masonry as the jacking plates took the load preventing further cracking.
