Structural Support

Removing an underground storage tank can create a structural weakness that requires reinforcing a building’s foundation. IRS Environmental experts evaluate the condition of the foundation and the surrounding soil to determine the best means of stabilizing the structure.

When necessary, IRS Environmental will install helical piers to repair and reinforce foundations. Helical piers are deep foundation anchors that tread into the ground to transfer the weight of the structure to the surrounding soil.
