Foundation Repair: Piers
Innovative Push Pier like other resistance piers is an end-bearing pier that does not rely upon nor requires skin friction to produce support, unlike concrete cylinders. Each pier is field load tested after it is installed. These push piers are able to develop a factor of safety because the piers are installed and load tested individually using the maximum weight of the structure as the reaction force. The ability of the system to develop significant factors of safety comes from the different foundation lifting methods used between pier installation and load transfer during restoration.
