How do you avoid having to lay a giant base of concrete to lend support to a structure? Use Helical Pilings!
RMS Energy recently worked on a project in which helical pilings were driven into the ground using a pneumatic driver on a large excavator.
These can be installed quickly and in below-freezing temperatures. The install-depth is well below the frost level, so it avoids any issues with heaving.
Working with a Montana-based contractor, RMS Energy then set adapter plates for the tap box structure on each one and welded them into place.
