Engineers - Professional ResourcesWhen you’re designing an underpinning solution for new construction or a repair, you need to know the technical information on piering products. We’re your resource for underpinning and moisture management solutions.

We have Professional Engineers on staff, including a geotechnical engineer, to answer your questions. We’re happy to work with you to develop preliminary designs or lead a Continuing Education course for your firm.

And when it’s time to being the project, we’ll work with other contractor’s schedules, and we’re cost effective on small jobs.

Engineers - Concrete Footing DesignFoundation Design Considerations
When designing a structure there’s more to consider than the aesthetics and materials. It’s important to evaluate the soil bearing capacity of where the structure will rest and the weight of the materials within the building, and the local weather. Read more…

Engineers - Concrete Footing DesignConcrete Footing Design
When designing a structure’s foundation, it’s important to take into account the soil’s bearing capacity when designing the footing. The lower the bearing capacity of the soil, the wider the footing needs to be to offset the reduced capacity. Read more…

Engineers The Uses of Helical PilesThe Uses of Helical Piles
Helical piles have a multitude of applications including new construction and retrofit applications. The pile can be used for compressive or tensile installations, and can be safely installed in contaminated soils or limited access areas. Read more…

Additional Resources from FEMA’s Foundation Analysis and Design

Reinforced concrete footing are proportioned according the provisions of ACI 318, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete. It is often opined that foundations should not yield, due to the high cost of foundation repair. However, nonlinear soil behavior is common in strong ground shaking, and it is traditional to design foundations for the reduced forces computed with the response modification factor, R, used for the superstructure. Neither the NEHRP Recommended Provisions nor earlier model building codes required the use of amplified forces for foundation design.
