With over 20 years of construction experience, Eric Hetletvedt decided to start a new specialized business. He established Techno Metal Post Central Minnesota in 2012.
During my career as a General Contractor in the construction industry, I had deep foundation projects that required helical piles once or twice a year. I noticed only a few companies provided this service and that they specialized in large commercial jobs. Scheduling them for my small residential jobs was difficult. They also used very large equipment which was not designed for helical pile installation. I thought there had to be an easier way.
After visiting Techno Metal Post headquarters, there was no question in my mind: I wanted to do business with this manufacturer. Techno Metal Post designs, engineers, and manufactures their own piles and installation equipment, which is specially designed for helical pile installation. Techno Metal Post helical piles are guaranteed not to move or settle due to frost heave and are guaranteed to support small or heavy loads. Installation is done with little impact to the surrounding environment. The machine tracks leave little disturbance to property and landscaping.
Techno Metal Post also has a great mechanical and structural engineering team, always striving for perfection. They are constantly improving and innovating their current systems and products, never resting on their laurels. The engineering department reviews, analyzes, and certifies projects.
Techno Metal Post Central Minnesota currently specializes in, but is not limited to, new projects and repairs to existing projects for contractors and homeowners. No job is too small for consideration. Techno Metal Post Central Minnesota is currently based in Waconia MN, so I have the potential to work anywhere in the state, depending on the project. I typically travel within a range of 60 miles or less. Some of the cities I serve are Plymouth, Maple Grove, Wayzata, Waconia, Medina, Corcoran, Minneapolis, Orono, Chanhassen, Chaska, Victoria, Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Brooklyn Park, Bloomington, Edina, Prior Lake, Golden Valley, Excelsior, St Michael, Buffalo, Rogers, Mound, Delano, Elko New Market (for a comprehensive list, please see our territory directory below).
Our helical pier foundations are installed by our trained and certified professionals, using specialized hydraulic machines. Our method allows you to start building immediately, without the hassles of digging holes or pouring concrete.
Techno Metal Post has developed a range of hydraulic machines dedicated entirely to the installation of helical piles. They are all designed to perform rigorous and reliable work. In most cases, no excavation is necessary for common residential projects.
The price of our products is very competitive compared to traditional concrete foundations. No excavation is required and no need to wait for the concrete to cure. In addition, there is no need to repair the site or remove excess soil. All of these factors mean that your project, carried out with Techno Metal Post, will save you time and money.
Our specialized hydraulic machines are compact, powerful, and allows for even the most complex job. The installation of a helical pier foundation is made possible, regardless of whether the location has limited access, or the terrain is uneven and sloped. Our smallest machine can even pass through a normal door frame or a gate door.
It is easy to obtain building permits when you use our product in lieu of traditional concrete footings. Our product is Code compliant and accepted by Building departments. Techno Metal Post products have been evaluated by IAPMO for its compliance with the International Residential Code (IRC) and hold the Evaluation Report #ER-481. Also, for projects submitted to the International Building Code (IBC) Techno Metal Post has been evaluated by ICC-ES and possesses the Evaluation Report #ESR-3418.
Every Techno Metal Post is covered by a twenty-five (25) year limited warranty from the date of installation. We support all our customers with a high level of service, from manufacturing to installation, so that they can benefit from our technology and experience that raises the level of performance in the industry.
With Techno Metal Post screwed foundations, it is possible to build a patio in a single day. Watch a few videos demonstrating how quick and easy it is to carry out a construction project on Techno Metal Post.
Techno Metal Post has revolutionized deck building for me. The ability to set the steel posts and build in the same day greatly increases production. Add in the fact that I'm saving huge bucks in labor by not having to remove displaced earth, haul concrete, and clean up the mess makes Techno Metal Post the only way to begin a deck project.
Great company. Their service exceeded expectations. Highly recommend using this company for anyone building. The technical expertise provided, prompt service and professional installers made this project easy.
A solarium needs a foundation [...] having a concrete slab on grade with posts driven through the slab to lock it in place, so it won’t shift or move over time. But the kind of posts your contractor uses will make all the difference. We used Techno Metal Post’s helical pier — three at the back of the solarium (the part that’s away from the house). They’re like giant metal screws, so the frost can’t grab them and pull them up. Only a certified technician can install these posts because specialized hydraulic machinery that measures soil conditions has to be used.
[...] When we began to build the cabin, the first thing we did was to put the 8″ x 8″ sill beams on top of the posts — and they fit perfectly square and level all around. Because of that exactness, keeping the cabin true as construction progressed was never an issue. [...]
We have worked with Tim Rushing on various jobs lately and he has been the ultimate professional to work with. Schedules are always followed, and deadlines are met with ease. Tim’s knowledge of the business is exceptional, and all of his employees are first rate. I will be recommending Techno Metal Post Pikes Peak to all of my future clients.
Working with Techno Metal Post is truly a pleasure. Skilled, knowledgeable, and very professional. I hope that we can do more projects together very soon.
Techno Metal Post makes life easier for anyone with a construction project that requires a foundation in almost any type of soil.
