Ram Jack Installs 18 Helical Piles to Support New Pre-Fabricated Structure

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 Whether the issue is crowded classrooms, outdated sports facilities, or simply the need for more space, schools are often faced with finding creative ways to make the most out of limited resources.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.
