Foundation Repair Contractors Attend Management Training in Connecticut

More than 20 foundation repair contractors from along the East Coast braved the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy to attend Management Training in Seymour, Connecticut in mid-October.  Managers from varying departments such as sales, call center, marketing and production attended the event, along with company owners.  Participants spent time examining their own leadership style and evaluating the strengths and weaknesses inherent to those styles.  Attendees also studied an extensive hiring process focused on bringing the best talent on board, evaluated their different types of employees and how to manage them best, and learned how to create simple but effective systems for orienting new hires.  Finally, each department was examined in terms of operating efficiently and key performance metrics.

Polyurethane Grouting and Cellular Concrete Products Now Available From Foundation Supportworks

Foundation Supportworks (FSI) is excited to announce the addition of two new products, PolyLEVEL™ and StableFILL™, to our expanding line of geotechnical and foundation stabilization solutions.  FSI introduced these products to our dealer network at a training seminar held in Omaha, Nebraska during the week of October 8th.  Over 60 foundation repair contractors from throughout North America attended the event, which covered various topics related to the new product lines as well as jobsite demonstrations on proper installation techniques.

The Foundation Supportworks PolyLEVEL™ System utilizes high-density polyurethane to stabilize and level concrete floors and foundations.  With multiple forumulas available, PolyLEVEL™ is able to fit the needs of any job, large or small.  PolyLEVEL™ is a two-part urethane polymer that expands into rigid, structural foam to fill voids, stabilize and lift concrete, and offer solutions to a wide range of geotechnical and structural applications.

StableFILL™ Cellular Concrete is a lightweight material made by replacing some or all of the stone aggregate used in standard concrete with uniform air cells (voids).  These air cells are created by blending foaming agents into the concrete during the mixing process, and can be managed to produce an engineered geotechnical material.  With the ability to be produced in both a pervious and non-pervious blend, StableFILL™ can be used in many geotechnical applications including load-reducing fill, backfill for tunnels and retaining walls, annular grouting for tunnels, fill for bridge approaches, and fill for sinkholes and abandoned underground tanks, pipelines and mines.
