The Jenks Intermediate East Middle School is home to around 2,000 students. As it goes for any school, student safety should be their number one priority. With this said, it is the school's job to fix any safety hazards immediately. That is why when a corner of the school's music room started to sink, it was causing wall damage and also served as a potential hazard. This problem was in need of an immediate fix.
Bedlam Concrete Lifting installed a total of 10 Galvanized HP350 Helical Piles with Underpinning Brackets. To start, the team dug a total of 10 holes at pre-determined locations. Using a rotary-torque drive unit, the Helical Piles were driven to a depth of 21 feet so they could support a load of up to 30 kips. After this, the underpinning brackets were attached to the piers. The foundation was then lifted using a hydraulic jacking system. After the foundation was lifted and permanently stabilized, the holes were backfilled and the school's structural integrity was fully restored.
