Almita manufactures piles that can be used in a variety of industrial and commercial projects, including industrial work camps, school portables and slope stabilization projects. Screw piles are easily integrated with traditional concrete grade beams or floor slabs.
One method used for restoring failing foundations is underpinning. Underpinning makes use hydraulic jacks that support the structure until the foundation is lifted and the screw piles are installed. While Almita does not currently offer an underpinning service, we do design and provide custom screw piles for underpinning projects. Almita has a wide range of equipment for underpinning piles including, mini-hoes, skid steer loaders and hand-held drives.
Common industrial and commercial applications include:
- Industrial work camps (portable and permanent)
- Commercial structures
- School portables
- Grade beam and slab foundations
- Slope stabilization
- Foundation restoration and stabilization
- Retaining and shoring wall tie-backs
