    What we are looking at here are 7' extensions to our helical lead sections. After the lead helical section has been drilled into the ground, these extensions will be bolted to the lead section and drilled deeper and deeper until essentially we are no longer able to gain depth. Once this depth is reached, we know that our piles have reached soil that will provide the needed support for the new transformers.

    26 pre-construction helical piles installed with extensions to desired depth. It was a challenge and a real pleasure working with Pacific Corp and Christenson Electric, and we look forward to more opportunity to work together in the future.
