Foundations for Concrete Projects in Winnipeg

Complement your concrete with the deep support of an engineered helical pile foundation that delivers unparalleled durability and longevity to beams, ICF blocks, pads, and more

Concrete You Can Support On A Helical Pile Foundation

Reduce overall volumes of concrete and secure robust protection against shifting, cracking, or crumbling


Concrete Foundation Beams

The usual solution to support concrete beams in Winnipeg involves pouring footings, adding time and material costs. Swap concrete footings for helical piles and enjoy enduring support, no-dig install, and expedited timelines. 


Insulated Concrete Forms

ICF blocks have become a popular way to build strong, well-insulated basements and other structures. A helical pile foundation is an ideal fit, keeping movement at bay while transferring loads into firm soil layers.


Concrete Slabs, Floors, Pads

Concrete slabs are prone to cracking or sinking as the ground moves. Helical piles transfer loads from the slab or floor down into supportive layers of soil, and easily tie-in to rebar. The result is long-term protection and durability.


Monuments & Other Structures

Monuments typically bring heavy weight in a small footprint, so it's key the foundation will hold up. The no-disturbance nature of helical piles makes them a perfect fit for quiet installation in parks and public spaces.

How Helical Foundations Work For Concrete Projects

If you're dealing with weak soils or tough locations, helical piles can deliver deep support that complements concrete and ensures long-term performance. Reduce the amount of material required for your concrete project, start pouring sooner, and defend against damage from freeze / thaw cycles.

  • Weak Soils? No Problem

    The loose and constantly-moving soils often found in Manitoba can create problems for concrete. A helical pile firmly anchors into competent layers, preventing damage from shifting soil

  • Protects From Frost Damage

    Brutal freeze and thaw cycles can result in concrete foundations cracking or failing. Helical piles provide the strength needed to resist deep frost lines and harsh winters.

  • Easy Transition to Concrete

    Connecting a helical pile to your concrete project is easy with our off-the-shelf adapters that quickly transition to beams, ICF blocks, pads, and more.
