Get Your Foundation Right

The benefits of Helical Screw Piles

This type of piling system is valued for its rapid installation, minimal environmental impact, and low footprint on the jobsite. Screw piles have immediate load carrying capacity and work well in high groundwater conditions. These piles are fabricated in sections making it easy to extend or reduce the length of the installation needed to suit the site conditions and design requirements. Screw piles are also a great solution if you are in a remote area or have limited access. The best part, they can be installed year-round in pretty much any weather condition and they are completely removeable. Although they are typically used a permanent foundation, helical piles are easily unscrewed back out of the ground at the end of a project leaving little environmental impact.

Equipment Recovery at Arborfield Saskatchewan

By | Recent Activity

We are on a recovery mission. The assignment: Recover equipment from a plant in Arborfield, SK for install at Virtex Farm Foods.
Our biggest target:  Canola Conditioner by French Oil Machinery Company

Getting this 65,000 lb Canola Conditioner by French out requires a lot of teamwork. We had to remove it through the roof with a 270 ton and 75 ton crane. Kudos to Sterling Crane for their excellent operators! Extreme weather and heavy snow fall added challenge to this controlled demolition and recovery of equipment. Next, transport to Saskatoon, SK and finally, install at Virtex Farm Foods. More to come on that.
