New Construction Piers will Keep a Stadium Building Stable in Columbus, OH

Thursday, June 8th, 2017 by Holly Richards-Purpura

Challenge

While laying out and constructing a new stadium and structures on the property, a local general contractor recognized the need from another company to ensure structural stability.

The site of a former speedway in Columbus, OH, was in the process of transitioning to an athletic stadium complex. The complex is intended to host professional rugby and lacrosse games, and the structures on the site would be constructed from repurposed shipping containers.

The general contractor wanted to take every step necessary in ensuring the safety and stability of the buildings on the property. After researching various companies and options, and then learning more about Ohio Basement Authority online, he contacted us because he knew he could trust our expert opinion and solution.

The contractor met with one of our experienced inspectors who knew exactly what the build site needed based on previous experience with similar projects. This inspector recently helped a contractor in an area southwest of Columbus with ensuring the stability of a new build. That job required a handful of products to be installed, but this particular project called for significantly more.

Solution

Our inspector was up to the challenge, and he was confident one of our company’s solutions would be the best fit for this project. He recommended having our company install 80 Helical Piers.

While they are typically used in retrofit situations to lift and stabilize settling structures, piers also can be installed prior to the construction of a structure’s foundation to ensure its stability.

One of our expert crews installed this vast amount of piers – our largest piering job to date – over the course of one week. These Helical Piers, also known as Helical Piles, are heavy-duty, galvanized steel piers that are mechanically driven down to competent soil. They protect the structure by preventing settlement in unstable soils.

The contractor can now move forward with the innovative project on the property knowing these reliable piers will help create and maintain the new build’s stability.
