Cantsink’s Helical Piles Provide Extensive New Construction Support for Pooler IMAX Theater

One of the most important details of a new construction project is making sure the project is built on a stable surface. While factors such as weather, climate and soil stability come into play, Cantsink provides the best contractor support and helical pile/pier options for every phase of the project. Helical pile foundation systems are a cost-effective solution that ensures soil stability and can be installed in just about any project of any scale.

Soft fill and a coastal climate provided challenges for the engineering team leading the expansion of the IMAX Theater in Pooler, Ga. Cantsink used helical piles to provide stability in increasingly wet conditions. While some column loads exceeded 800,000 pounds and significant lateral capacities came into play, Cantsink met the challenge, using multiple helical piles to solve this challenge and provide continuous support in the wet climate and sandy soil of this coastal location.
