Industrial foundation repair
Over the years, Abalon has performed industrial foundation repairs in petrochemical plants, gas plants, rail yards, airports, dams, water treatment plants, etc.
We set up a trailer, bin, and portable washroom; All are required for longer projects.
In the project displayed here, the trees needed to be removed.
Through the duration of the project, trains continued to run. Abalon is able to perform industrial foundation repairs without shutting down operations.
High voltage, communications, gas, water, and sewer lines were all encountered.
The trees that needed to be removed were recycled.
Even our owner, Juan, is helping out.
The berm needed removal to allow for foundation repair.
Soil was stored on site.
Our crews ensure to take proper documentation, especially on larger projects. Pictures and a log are kept for the duration of the project.
Concrete that is in the way is saw cut, broken, and recycled.
Hand excavation is required to expose all utilities.
Our Field Supervisor gives pointers to concrete breaker.
Soil was moved away from the excavation site.
Entrances were maintained and operable at all times.
Safety is of utmost importance at Abalon. We take pride in maintaining a safe environment for both our staff and clients on our job sites.
Our operators have a golden touch. They are specialists in this field, and are passionate about foundation repairs.
Our Field Supervisor guides shoring box in the image displayed here.
Shoring boxes are a necessity; This project was 12 feet deep.
The perforated drain pipe shown here has failed. It was plugged and full of roots, which caused the basement to leak.
Services can cause headaches for shoring process, but our skilled team of experts are trained to deal with all types of situations.
The walls were cleaned, cracks were chipped, and then caulked with Polyurethane.
The sheer magnitude of this project is evident in this picture.
At Abalon, we believe that a safe worker is a happy worker.
Proper safety gear is used as waterproofing membrane is troweled on.
Waterproofing is given an adequate time to dry.
Foundation wrap was installed along with a 6 inch weeping tile and washed rock.
The project is backfilled in lifts and tamped down.
Excavations can be sloped back 45% or shored, depending on the soil conditions.
Shores must be continually moved to allow for cleaning, chipping, patching, waterproofing, and wrapping.
Flashing is used to protect the foundation wrap at the top.
This project took a substantial amount of time, and needed to be done safely and correctly.
A portion of the concrete entrance that was re-poured after the repairs were completed.
Backfilling was completed by hand and with machines to streamline efficiency .
The berm is reinstalled.
The berm is hydro seeded for grass to grow back. Once the grass has grown back, you wouldn’t even know that the Abalon team was ever there.
