In late May Techno Metal Post Alaska installed (70) P2 2.375” helical piles with a single 10” helix bearing plate to support a large deck in Fairbanks, AK.

There was too much snow to start the project in April, so it was delayed until May.  Even in late May crews still encountered some frozen soils from 6” below grade up to 5 ft.  

All piles were installed to an average depth of 10-14 feet with a minimum load bearing capacity of 5000 lbs. The crew used the company’s smaller installation machine to install piles in the tight areas.  All the piles were successfully installed by a two man crew in (3) days.
