Construction in the Lowcountry is not without challenges, a main one being the soft sandy soil common to many Lowcountry construction projects. Foundation piles, such as helicals, can offer an efficient and effective alternative to the traditional pier. They are ideal for projects where lack of space is a major concern, such as downtown Charleston. Additionally, they cause very little disruption to the surrounding soil and neighboring buildings, since they are easily installed without substantial excavation.
Depending on the size of your project and foundation requirements, traditional piers may not be the best option. Red Bay Constructors has extensive experience installing a variety of foundation piles for residential and commercial projects, including helical piles, micropiles and drilled-in displacement micropiles (DDM). Contact us today and we will review your project with our engineers to determine if helical piles are the best option for your project.
