Foundation Supportworks’ Don Deardorff, P.E. Paper on Geotechnical Investigation Guidelines for Helical Pile Designs
Foundation Supportworks senior geotechnical engineer, Don Deardorff, P.E., provides insight on the value of having thorough soil investigations in order to identify suitable bearing stratum for helical pile foundation designs. History has shown that without thorough and accurate soil investigations, projects often times are saddled with unplanned additional costs associated with change orders for the helical pile foundation plan.
