INSTALLATION OF FOUNDATION PILING
TRUST IN OUR EXPERTS
Our field workers, some of whom count over 15 years of pile installation experience, are a major asset to our projects’ success.
It’s important to know that this kind of pile acts as a deep foundation. That’s why installing piles is an engineering project that specifically requires the expertise of a specialized structural engineer. This type of hydraulic pile driving is a major project during which every detail needs meticulous calculation as the piles will ultimately be permanently supporting the load of the building. Our specialists, who have competency certificates from the Commission de la Construction du Québec (CCQ), are leaders in their field. You can count on our team’s expert knowledge for professional work that meets all standards!
INSTALLING FOUNDATION PILING
THE 8 KEY STAGES

We have established an effective process to optimize our work methods. From assessment to backfilling, our experts guide you every step of the way.
OF YOUR FOUNDATION
An Alerte Fissure expert will come to examine the subsidence to assess the situation and identify whether there is indeed a problem. They will then draw up an action plan. The size and positioning of the piles driven depend on the load to be supported.
FROM THE TERRAIN TO THE EQUIPMENT
This phase entails the preparation of the work site and moving of any objects that could impede execution of the work. If required, the area will be excavated or a floor opening will be created.
OF THE COMPONENTS AND DRIVING OF THE PILES
According to the engineer’s plans, an opening is made in the foundation footing to install the sleeve in which the pile will be inserted.
FOUNDATION PILE DRIVING
The pointed steel piles are inserted into the sleeves and are driven vertically until they reach the bedrock or refusal using a safe hydraulic system that does not create any vibration.
In some cases, it is not necessary to straighten a building after it has been stabilized. The Alerte Fissure expert will assess the situation.
Our specialists ensure that all cracks in the work area are repaired and reinforced with steel plates.
AND INSTALLATION OF A FRENCH DRAIN
The foundation is then waterproofed using a waterproof coating before being wrapped in a DELTA®-MS or DELTA®-DRAIN membrane. Then, to prevent moisture entering the basement, the DELTA®-MS or DELTA®-DRAIN membrane is combined with a French drain around the perimeter of the foundation.
The trench area is backfilled with 12” gravel over the drain and a geotextile membrane is installed between the gravel and backfill material. The drain is equipped with chimneys to facilitate cleaning.
