Property Owner Pleased as 12 Helicals Support New Home’s Foundation Case Studies
Installation of Helical Piles
Hernando County, FL
Located in Hernando County, Florida, the Weeki Wachee River runs from the
city of Weeki Wachee to the Gulf of Mexico. Home to the deepest naturally
occurring spring in the US, it is known for its beauty, making it an attractive
option for homeowners who want riverfront property with a gorgeous view.
This was the case with one such property owner who planned to reside on
the only undeveloped lot in a small community on the Weeki Wachee River.
The property owner planned to install a pre-fabricated structure on his
beautiful lot. Before that could be done, however, the property needed
grading as well as the installation of a foundation on which to rest the
new structure. All Florida Ram Jack was chosen for the job for numerous
reasons. First, the owner recognized the superior nature of Ram Jack’s
equipment, engineering, and installation techniques. At the same time,
the neighbors were less than excited about the noise, vibrations, and
heavy equipment associated with driving wooden piles, making Ram Jack’s
helical piles the more attractive option.
All Florida Ram Jack proposed grading the property and installing 12 new
construction piles. These piles would be strategically spaced to maximize
support for the coming pre-fabricated home.
In just two days, All Florida Ram Jack graded the soil of the property
and installed 12 piles to an average depth of 30 ft. The pre-fabricated
home now rests evenly on a strong foundation in the beautiful setting
of the Weeki Wachee River. When finished, the property owner was more
than pleased with the work completed by All Florida Ram Jack; the neighbors
were ecstatic that the installation took place so quickly and with minimal
interruption to their daily lives.
