helical piles. About 10 years ago, EBS worked with the
University of Western Ontario to research how helical
piles respond to seismic events. Those studies have been
used to further today’s screw pile applications.
However, Vito notes that helical piles are not the
answer to every foundation.
“Helical piles aren’t the cure-all for everything. We like
the square shaft helical piles because they can penetrate
denser soil and be installed through cobble; we’ve proven
it on projects. But if there is large, buried concrete rubble
or slabs, or large boulders, helicals are not the deep foundation
system to use. We try hard to help our clients
identify the right solution, even if it’s not ours.”
He credits the team at EBS for pushing the envelope
when it comes to alternative deep foundation solutions.
“We have fantastic, hardworking and innovative
people in the field and in the office. I’m very proud and
humbled by this group.”
As helical pile technology continues to develop, new
methods and applications will be discovered to realize
even better performance from this deep foundation
system. The screw pile isn’t confined to lightly loaded
applications such as wharves or residential support anymore.
In fact, there’s clearly an exciting future in store
for Mitchell’s revolutionary design, even as it closes in on
its 200th birthday.
