Engineering Department

Our engineering department is responsible for analyzing and validating your projects.

Whenever you submit a request for a helical pile foundation concerning a residential, commercial or industrial project, Techno Metal Post’s engineers will determine the proper types of piles to install, depending on the building and soil characteristics.

DFI-logo-RGBThe engineer may issue a certificate, and guarantee the work according to applicable standards.

Techno Metal Post is also an active member of the Deep Foundations Institute (DFI).

Specialized training for engineers

Training contents: Screw pile principles and standards, installation equipment, load test bench, etc.
