Helical Piles are load bearing large steel shafts with helical flights attached that is typically installed using an excavator of equipment used for installation. Helical piles almost resemble a large steel screw that is twisted into the earth. Geotechnical reports are used to determine the torque conversion so the piles are installed to the correct pile capacity. Helical piles can be a good choice when the project needs to be completed quickly and without a large area to work in.
