Helical Piles - Piling Solution for Commercial Projects in Pittsburgh

One common piling solution is helical piles, also known as screw piles. They are defined by the International Building Code (IBC) as "manufactured steel deep foundation elements consisting of a central shaft and one or more helical bearing plates. A helical pile is installed by rotating it into the ground. Each helical bearing plate is formed into a screw thread with a uniform defined pitch".

The benefits of using helical piles are:

  • Quick installation
  • Installs in areas with limited access
  • Little spoil removal
  • Torque correlates to capacity
  • Can be loaded immediately after installation
  • Resist both axial compression and tension loads
