Helical piles are an increasingly popular foundation solution for the transmission and distribution industry. We have serviced substations throughout Alberta to help with the provinces growing power demands. From substation additions, to telecommunication towers and transmission lines, we design, manufacture and install thousands of piles for the electrical industry every year. 

Our engineers analyze the soil conditions at each specific site and come up with a custom designed helical piles or driven piles to suit the application and conditions. Our modern equipment and powerful driveheads allow us to install helical piles quickly and accurately. This allows us to save our customers money and time. 

Helical piles are a perfect option for remedial work or additions in substations where an outage needs to occur as their installation time is a fraction of other piling types. An example of some typical structures that we have designed and/or installed helical piles or driven piles for is:
