This project called for the creation of an adequate load-bearing foundation for a multi-building senior living community in Ohio. The soil this development was to be built on was poorly suited for it - not only was it swampy and prone to swelling and movement, but it had been disturbed previously during the area's use as a landfill. In order for the buildings to remain stable, the foundation would have to bear on compact soils underneath the layer of landfill waste.
Almost every building in this development required a deep helical pier foundation. A grand total of 940 2.875" diameter helical piers were drilled to an approximate depth of 30 feet, then fitted with compression- only new construction brackers to accommodate the attaching of a grade beam to support the building's structural frame.
