Ram Jack Installs 18 Helical Piles to Support New Pre-Fabricated Structure Case Studies
ARIES CONSTRUCTION | PRE-FABRICATED STRUCTURE SUPPORT
RICHLAND HILLS, TX
It is often difficult for schools to keep up with the needs of their students.
Whether the issue is crowded classrooms, outdated sports facilities, or
simply the need for more space, schools are often faced with finding creative
ways to make the most out of limited resources. This was exactly the case
at Haltom High School, which decided to expand its resources and install
new pre-fabricated structures to create much needed space for its vibrant,
growing student population.
Haltom High School, North RichlandHills School, and Birdville Schools
were working together on the project. They desired new pre-fabricated
structures to be installed adjacent to the Haltom High School track. However,
they ran into some grading and foundation problems prior to building installation.
The ground on which the buildings were to be installed was not level.
Furthermore, the soil was soft, making soil settlement and corresponding
building damage likely.
Ram Jack proposed the installation of strategically spaced helical piles
to provide an even, strong support for the forthcoming structures. Each
pile would be driven to solid soil deep beneath the surface, thereby providing
a reliable foundation on which the pre-fabricated structures can rest
for years to come.
First Ram Jack graded the soil in the area, creating a smooth, flat region
that was ready for helical pile installation. Ram Jack then installed
54 piles to depths ranging from 12-24 ft. as needed. When finished, a
neat, geometric pattern of piles waited for the forthcoming pre-fabricated
structures. The schools were more than pleased with the work done by Ram
Jack, stating that they would contact Ram Jack again if they needed similar
work in the future.
