Helical Piles in Mezz Level
For the Folgers Coffee Company nestled in New Orleans, Louisiana, a new mezzanine level in an existing building required a bit more research and engineering in order to be ready for new additions to it. When it was time to craft a solution prior to the project, Ram Jack was on the job.
Ram Jack Comes In
Ram Jack of Louisiana was called to the scene to assess the situation and make sure the project was properly thought through and would be safe over time — especially because this addition was to occur in an pre-existing, older building.
After calculation and deliberation, it was determined that 78, 2 ⅞ inch helical piles would be required in order to provide safety of the area. This would be supplemented with a 10-12 inch disc arrangement on the lead section and all new pile caps. Between these grade beams, Ram Jack Louisiana also proposed the cutting of 6-foot sections in order to make the installation simple, fast, and overall effective.
Ram Jack dedicated an entire day to testing the piles, and in less than two weeks after the project began, the entire installation was complete without any major changes to the original plan. With an average depth of 25 feet, the mezzanines were officially ready to be built without any other delays, setbacks, or worries about the future structural soundness of the area.
