As we all know, a multi-story century-old brick facade with no building behind it is not going to be the most steady structure. The possibility of vibrations strikes fear in any sensible person. Enter.. helical piles.

As part of the West End Ironworks redevelopment project in Ithaca, NY, a new 5-story building is being built behind the historic facade of a former iron foundry. CMI Structural Solutions installed 4.92 miles of 5.5” IDEAL helical piles for this 110,000 square foot building and the brick went unscathed. Full case study coming soon.

If you have delicate projects like this in your pipeline, do yourself a favor and reach out to the IDEAL Design Team and see how we can help you save time and money without having a historic structure collapse on you. We promise you won’t regret it.
