Texas Tilt Wall Project
In Coppell, Texas, Ram Jack assisted in the solution for a tilting wall of a local warehouse. The panels had settled around 2 to 3 inches on one of the corners. Ram Jack was called in by one of the contractors at Accord Construction, who was working for the owners at Duke Realty. The job specs were done by Childress Engineering who worked closely with Sam Rosenberk with Fortified Engineering who gave the layout and design. The crew excavated down below the panels to install the piles. Once all the piles were installed the crew hooked them up to a lifting manifold and made a synchronized list and got full recovery. Accord, Childress, and Duke Realty watched the lift and were very impressed with the work. The job took Ram Jack 2 days to complete.
