On this featured project, we worked on one of the Pavilions at the University of Virginia. These original buildings were constructed between 1817 and 1826 as part of UVA’s Academical Village on the Lawn. University faculty and senior administrators use the Pavilions as their primary residences, as well as hosting classes, to live and work among the student body. One of the Pavilions was showing its age, and a structural engineer recommended foundation repair with helical piles to strengthen the overall construction and prevent any shifting over time.

After reviewing the structural engineer’s plan, we began preparations to install four helical piers. We excavated 2 holes for the 2 piers on the parking lot side of the building, accounting for all utilities and addressing the soil conditions. We encountered several large roots and many rocks as we dug each hole, so we had to take extra care to break up these obstacles with an air compressor. Once the holes were clear of obstacles, we could begin drilling the piles. Inside the garden, we used even finer precision to hand-excavate two more holes for another two piers.
