No matter where in the United States you choose to build your project, it inevitably must communicate with the ground. Depending on where you are, sometimes the ground can be your biggest adversary in making your construction project a reality. Building in places such as the difficult coastal areas of Texas, the alluvial plains of Louisiana, and the piedmont areas of northeastern Georgia and the Carolinas, many times foundations must be designed to penetrate layers of unsuitable soils at the surface levels and engage the suitable soils or rock layers deep below. In response to this, SUMMIT design foundations for residential, commercial and our full breadth of construction markets, implementing concrete caissons, timber piles, micro-piles, helical piers, steel “H” and pipe piles, and other technologies. Whatever soil challenges the foundation design must respond to, SUMMIT Structural provides the most engineering economic solutions available. We fully collaborate and consult with the geotechnical engineers of our company to arrive at solutions that guarantee excellent foundation performance in difficult situations.
