activities often include excavations in and around buildings and structures that
should not be undermined. CEMCO’s staff of trained “Competent Persons” (OSHA
Excavation Standards), recognize that excavations deeper than the building
footers may eventually shift, risking structural failures. CEMCO offers sound
solutions for handling these concerns, including demolition or partial
demolition and re-build, cribbing and steel, concrete columns, and the Helical
Pier technologies of AB Chance. We will evaluate the site specific conditions
and develop a cost-effective plan customized to your project.
Helical Piers Provide New Options
The complex challenges presented when remediating in close proximity to
buildings and structures often plays a significant part in remedial action work
plan decisions. “Should we support the structure and remove the footings and
foundation, or leave it in place and work around it?”
Helical Pier technology allows us to leave foundations, and even slab floors,
undisturbed while working under and around them. CEMCO is a premier area
installation contractor, with multiple teams ready to install structural support
per your engineered plans or help you develop plans with our contract
professionals. All of our supervisors and estimators are certified and trained
by AB Chance, and we re-train regularly to assure you get the best structural
support currently available.

CEMCO specializes in projects involving excavations under and near buildings.

structures, CEMCO has the experience – whether it involves moving the existing
structure, rebuilding the foundation, or utilizing prefabricated walls and
foundations. Our trained pier installers, OSHA Competent Persons, and experience
ensure that the job gets done - correctly, safely, and permanently.
