Objective: to stop the foundation movement of an existing Aiea house resulting from sliding and settling under the weight of a recent addition built with traditional construction techniques which did not address the expansive soil & slope conditions of the site. Solution was achieved through the use of approx 30 micropiles & tiebacks angled under the existing foundation.
