This photo shows 8 of the 40 installed push piers with lift assemblies and hydraulic rams in place and ready for lifting. Notice that each lift cylinder runs to a manifold and hydraulic pump. This allows the structure to be uni-formally lifted drastically reducing stresses imposed on the building structure. A laser level is set up to monitor the vertical movement of the structure.
This photo shows the three piers installed beneath the chimney foundation. The chimney was lifted in concert with the foundation a total of 4".
This photo shows two of the piers that were installed from within the home. The interior installation allowed the property owner to save the decorative stone patio that spanned the entire length of this side of the home.

YSS was called upon to stabilize the hunting lodge on the ranch which had experienced global settlement including settlement in excess of 4 inches on one corner. This corner also included a stone chimney that measured 9' wide x 4' deep and nearly 30' tall. A total quantity of 40 3.5" resistance piers were installed around the perimeter of the foundation. This job posed challenges along the way which included extremely large footings requiring extensive concrete cutting to accommodate our brackets. The home was lifted and stabilized to within 1/4" of level including the stone chimney. The project was completed without issues and on schedule.
