Excavating gas station for pier installation

8 Inches of Settlement Threaten Gas Station – Grayslake, IL

Atlas Resistance Piers are installed to permanently stabilize and lift the support columns of this gasoline station. 

Atlas 3 ½” Resistance Piers: 8

Part Number: AP-CL-UF-3500.165

Average Pier Depth: 30 feet

Factor of Safety: 2 : 1


Chimney Lifted and Pushed Laterally

This chimney had both settled vertically and laterally (as you can see from the gap between the bricks and the siding). Using two Atlas Resistance Piers, we permanently stabilized the chimney, preventing any further movement. However, the homeowner let us know that part of his expectation was that we rotate the chimney laterally and "straighten it out." Using a series of hydraulic jacks manifolded together to activate the lateral braces seen in the image above, while simultaneously activating the jacks on the resistance piers, we were able to safely and effectively push the chimney back to its original position.
