Cantsink Provides Needed Support for Long Retaining Wall at Lakefront Community
Posted in News
The hub of every resort community is the clubhouse area, where residents and visitors gather to relax, celebrate and socialize, was in dire need of foundation retaining wall support.
At the Cottages of Lanier, the golf cart parking lot at the clubhouse is above an 80-foot retaining wall. With the soft soils common to areas around bodies of water like Lake Lanier and the need for sturdy support of the wall rising 13 feet for that distance, builders chose Cantsink to provide trusted support.
The wall not only must support the weight of the soil and moisture pushing from behind it, but it also must support the force of the backfill created by a parking lot and golf carts moving above it.
Cantsink installed 45 of its patented helical piles, each with a 12-inch helix, under the wall, a total of 836.5 feet of underground support to ensure the wall is permanently secure and stable.
