MO and IL Commercial Foundation Contractor Holds Introductory Design Class - Image 1St. Louis, MO – Foundation Supportworks™ by Woods has hosted an engineering training for design professionals interested in helical foundation systems, helical soil nails and push piers.

The training included a 5-hour presentation which was held at the South County Center in St. Louis on May 11th.

This seminar began at 8:30 a.m., but attendees were able to arrive anytime after 8:00 a.m. -- when doors open. The class lasted until 5:30 p.m.

Through this course, attendees could gain 5 hours worth of professional development hours, receive a completion certificate, and gain knowledge about: helical foundation systems, helical soil nails, push pier systems, typical applications, design considerations, capacity calculations, verification of capacity, and load testing. The class was a complete success according to attendees.

"... I didn't realize Woods did commercial jobs. I knew they worked residential and I can now see how their foundation repair method can be used on bigger jobs too. I especially liked the way they can customize their helical pile to fix the design needs of any particular project," said Robert, an attendee.

The class was organized and led by two Foundation Supportworks engineers; Jeff Kortan, PE and Don Deardorff, PE.
