Midwest Basement Systems to Begin New Construction Helical Project

midwest-logo-fbsMidwest Basement Systems was recently awarded a project to install 66 new construction helical piles for a school renovation project in Leon, IA. The piles will be installed to support the new foundations as well as a structural slab. Helical piers were the perfect solution for this project because of limited access adjacent and within the existing building. The project also requires that a load test be conducted to verify the pile capacity and performance (settlement) under load. Tim Heady, owner of Midwest Basement Systems, recently hired a new employee, Mark Rasmusson, to  manage his commercial foundation division. Mark’s engineering background and construction experience will be a great asset to Midwest Basement Systems on these types of projects.

Foundation Repair of Western Colorado Restores Historical Landmark

Foundation Repair of W. Colorado restores stability to Historical SocietyHistorical Society Foundation Repair CrewFoundation Repair of Western Colorado recently completed an interesting project for the Hotchkiss-Crawford Historical Society. The project involved the installation of the FSI Model 288 Push Pier System to re-level and straighten two historic stone pillars at the entrance to the Delta County Fairgrounds in Hotchkiss, Colorado. The historic pillars were over eight inches out-of-level and Ted’s crew was able to restore the pillars back to their original position. During the lifting process, many on-lookers from the community were present to cheer on the crew at the success of straightening the pillars!
