In July of 2019 HPW published an article by GoliathTech Piles Founder and President, Julian Reusing, that detailed significant problems with the Canadian helical (screw) pile marketplace (click here to read article). The problems included:
(1) Manufacturers Taking Shortcuts to Win Projects
(2) Installers Not Installing Piles Correctly
(3) Local & National Code Officials Not Enforcing Codes and Certifications
Julian Reusing had been witnessing for years how these serious problems were having a negative impact not only on his company’s ability to compete fairly, but even more concerning was the damage being done to the credibility of helical (screw) piles in Canada. Reusing finally hit his own wall of tolerance in 2016 and began an exhaustive effort to document these serious problems and put verifiable proof in front of code officials and the general public.
Hopefully the CCMC will soon be addressing this issue for the betterment of the helical pile industry.
