2015 DFI Helical Piles & Tiebacks Seminar was Held in Newark, NJ on September 10th

by Bill Bonekemper

September, 2015

The Deep Foundations Institute Helical Piles and Tiebacks Committee (HPTC) held its annual seminar on September 10th in Newark, NJ.  The annual seminar is open to everyone who has interest in learning about product technology, application design, installation techniques, project histories and new research and testing methodologies. Close to 90 people attended this year’s seminar that was put together and managed by Mark Bryant, P.E. from MacLean Power Systems Civil Products Division.

Several of the speakers made presentations on the repair and rebuilding of houses and other structures that were damaged by Super Storm Sandy.  With the new FEMA flood codes in place, many property owners are moving forward with their plans to have their structures lifted or built from scratch to heights of eight feet or more above grade.  Helical piles are the preferred choice by engineers and contractors for building the new foundations for these coastline structures.  Below are a few pictures of some of these types of projects.
