Excavation of the foundation
The foundation is excavated down to the footings.
The foundation wall and footings are exposed to mount the push pier brackets
Brackets are mounted
BRackets are mounted onto the footings to drive the push piers through
A drive stand is mounted to use a hydraulic press to push the pier tubes down.
THe piers installed
All the piers are installed and the house is lifted. The piers are capped so that they cannot settle.
Foundation is wrapped
The foundation is wrapped and waterproofed.
The Drive cylinder is mounted on the bracket to push the tubes.
Each tube is documented with the depth and soil pressure so the engineer can sign off on the lift. The engineer specified the soil pressure for each pier. The Pressure is record every 2 feet.
