Deep Foundation SystemsDiagram of Omaha Helical Pile Installation

Large construction projects in Omaha, NE can run into serious problems when encountering weak soil foundations. To combat the issue we use true helical piles that are drilled deep into the ground reaching foundation supporting soil. For particularly weak soil profiles we can use grouted helical piles.

Helical Piles

Helical piles are often called screw piles, frictional piles or micropiles. A helical pile is a long central shaft with "flights" or "blades" which are helix-shaped bearing plates. The pile is screwed deep into the ground to stronger soils which put upward pressure on the blades. The top of the pipe is fitted to a bracket which is attached to the structure. 

Grouted Piles

If you are dealing with a structure sitting on very weak soil in Omaha, NE then grouted piles are the answer. They are installed in a similar fashion to normal helical piles but as the pile shaft advances micropile grout flows into the void behind the shaft. The added grout increases the bearing capacity of the pile and reduces any chance of the shaft buckling. Grouted piles cost less than using longer or thicker piles to achieve the same support. The technique also allows for smaller equipment so we can reach limited access areas of the structure. 

Earth Retention Systems 

For foundation projects that involve earth retention in Omaha, NE we have economical and effective solutions. Helical anchors can be fitted to bowing foundation or retaining walls to correct them. You can also build or strengthen retaining walls using Shotcrete and Soil Nails. 

Helical Anchors

If your foundation or retaining walls are unstable due to unbalanced earth pressures we install helical anchors providing lateral stability. For an immediate, economical solution on your Omaha, NE project Helical Anchors are the answer. They can be installed in any weather, in tight access areas and on almost any application. Our helical anchor piers, also called helical piers or helical tiebacks have a true helix blade preventing soil disturbance and improving predictable capacity. Helical anchors can also be load tested immediately upon installation.

Shotcrete & Soil Nails

Shotcrete (wet gunning) is a versatile solution for strengthening retaining walls, tunnels, foundation walls, bridges, swimming pools and shear walls. A concrete or mortar is sprayed onto these installations via a hire pressure hose and application nozzle. 

By using Shotcrete along with Soil Nails (helical soil nails) you can construct new retaining walls much more quickly and in a less expensive manner than concrete masonry units (SMSIs) or poured concrete. Shotcrete and Soils Nails allow for top down building which avoids unnecessary excavation. This combo is a great way to build temporary walls to support workable level areas on sloping sites. 

Underpinning Systems

Diagram of Omaha Push Pier Installation

Providing reliable foundation support for your projects in Omaha, NE does not need to be expensive or complex. Our underpinning systems provide reliable support for building as well as lighter structures like decks and pipelines. 

Push Piers

To support the structure with a suitable load bearing stratum we use commercial push piers. High-strength piers are driven into the soil and mounted with a load transfer bracket attached to the structure. The first pier section has a friction reducing collar welded to it that reduces frictional resistance during driving. The weight of the structure is supported through the push pier by load bearing soil or bedrock.

Helical Deck Piers

Helical Deck Piers are the answer for foundation support for smaller projects like pavilions, sunrooms, decks sheds, mobile homes or elevated walkways. High-strength piers are drilled into the ground reaching a strong stable soil base. The piers accept standard support brackets for either 4x4 or 6x6 posts. There is no need to excavate, no need to wait for concrete to cure and no weather or poor soil delays. Your customer will be thrilled by the decreased delay time and you will appreciate having a reliable, low cost method to provide foundation support for your Omaha projects.  

Pipeline Stabilization

If you need to support a pipeline the first thing that comes to mind is concrete coatings or concrete weights. Both of these are a pain to deal with and can be expensive. Our Helical Support Piles are a much less costly but probably the more reliable method for pipeline stabilization. Helical Anchor Supports easily overcome terrain challenges and allow for buoyancy control, span rectification and storm current protection. If you have pipeline plans in Omaha and want a level pipeline with no swag or sway at a much lower cost give us a call. 1-844-264-4280 

Commercial Concrete Leveling & Lifting

Fixing sunken concrete slabs in Omaha, NE by replacing them can be very expensive. Concrete grinding simply creates a thinner, weaker concrete slab. The right answer is concrete leveling. 

Concrete lifting and leveling has traditionally been achieved using a process called slab or mud jacking. In this process large holes were drilled through the concrete slab and pressurized mud slurry is pumped beneath the slab though the holes. The pressure of the slurry lifts the sunken slab and then the concrete cures leaving the slab in a level position. Unfortunately this method has become out dated. Fortunately, we use the updated method.

Instead of pumping mud slurry we use PolyLEVEL, an expanding polyurethane foam. The process is essentially the same. Holes are drilled in the concrete but they are significantly smaller. Polyurethane foam is injected but does not require the pressure of mudslurry as the foam expands to fill any voids beneath the concrete slab. The foam also needs time to cure but instead of the days it takes an hour to reach 90% strength.

Tack on the fact that PolyLEVEL is much lighter than mud slurry (no additional stress on the foundation soil) and that is waterproof (no washout) and it is the obviously the right choice for lifting and leveling sunken concrete slabs. If you are dealing with sunken slabs in Omaha on sidewalks, driveways, highways or parking lots Thrasher is the answer.
