Communication & Wireless

Demand for high-speed internet and data services in rural and remote areas means the pace of construction for communication towers is faster than ever. It's why more telecom companies and tower contractors are using helical piles to build their networks faster and safer.

Heading photo

Transmission & Distribution

As energy generation from renewable sources increases, and technologies like electric vehicles become more popular, Canadian power infrastructure needs a future-proof foundation. Helical piles are replacing concrete as the foundation of choice for transmission lines, substations, and equipment.

Oil & Gas

In oil and gas, increased scrutiny from regulators and the public means it's more vital than ever that operations are safe for people and the environment. Our team has experience working safely on oil and gas sites to install helical foundations that ensure projects are built faster and more eco-friendly than ever before.

Indigenous Communities

Most foundations in Northern communities aren't designed for the tough climate and challenging soil conditions. This has led to an epidemic of foundation problems. Helical piles can provide a stronger, more durable, and far more economical, foundation solution for construction projects in Indigenous communities.

Why Choose a VersaPile Helical Pile Foundation for Your Project?

Faster & More Efficient

Do you really want to wait 2+ weeks for concrete to cure before you can build? How about sitting around while long and awkward driven piles are hammered into the ground? Expedite your foundation and shorten your timelines by weeks. Helical piles can be installed significantly faster than other deep foundation solutions.

    No waiting for curing like concrete foundations
    Lighter and easier to handle on-site than driven piles
    Turns into the ground at a constant rate, we can install as many as 90+ piles per day

Safer for Your Employees

Why risk the safety of your on-site employees with foundation solutions that require open excavation, loud machines, extensive ground disturbance, and multiple pieces of heavy equipment tearing around? Helical piles require minimal equipment, no open excavation, and are safer to install than other technologies.

    Minimal equipment required for install reduces risk to your employees
    We are ISNetworld, COR, and Avetta Certified. Safety isn't just our priority, it's in our blood

Low Environmental Impact

The environmental impact of your project is under more scrutiny from regulators and investors than ever before. Dramatically reduce your impact on the local environment and make future site remediation easy. Helical piles create no disturbance to the soil, environment, animals, or people and can be easily removed.

    Zero noise, excavation, or soil disturbance required for installation
    No leaching of chemicals or toxins into the soil
    Can be 100% recycled at end of service life

Efficient & Economical

The Streamlined VersaPile Foundation Process

Skip the headache and hassle of unreliable foundation contractors and enjoy the smooth and efficient VersaPile Method of deep foundation design, engineering, and installation

Engineer-Approved Designs

Everything we do starts with good engineering. We sit down with you and your team to understand the unique demands and needs that your project brings. Our Engineering First approach ensures that your project is supported by the most efficient and effective foundation.

Pre-Installation Planning

One of the reasons our customers return to us time and time again for reliable deep foundations is because of our hyper-efficient processes and systems. That starts by creating a crystal-clear plan for the installation of your foundation. This includes outlining where we'll store materials, the sequence of pile installation, and defining the responsibilities of all our team members.

Smooth & Easy Installation

Because we take the time to properly plan and sequence your project, you might find the actual installation is a little... boring. Our highly-trained crews will show up on site, follow the pre-defined plan, and quietly get down to the business of installing your foundation safely and quickly. In fact, if you blink you might just miss the fact we were ever there.

Finishing Work

Whether you need a beautifully-designed pile cap to tie multiple helical piles together or straightforward finishing work, our team has the full complement of skills and equipment required to get it done right. In fact, the only thing you'll notice is how easy it is to tie into your foundation once we're finished with it.

Enduring Support (From a Team of Friendly Experts)

We understand that the job isn't done after we put your helical piles in the ground. You might have additional questions or just need some advice on transitioning your new foundation to your structure. Our team of friendly foundation experts will always be available to answer your questions or provide post-installation support and advice.

Frequently asked foundation questions

  • What are "industrial" helical pile foundations?

    We use the term "industrial helical piles" here at VersaPile to distinguish the helical foundations we install from other companies who primarily focus on the light-duty residential markets.
    While the engineering concepts behind an industrial helical pile foundation share similarities with residential helical applications, we believe it's important to draw a line between the two.
    Designing and installing high-capacity helical foundations for industrial-scale hydro, transmission & distribution, oil & gas, and Indigenous community projects, demands a high level of technical skill and experience.
    Our team has engineered and installed thousands of helical piles in some of the toughest conditions imaginable, supporting critical infrastructure like hydro transmission lines and telecommunication towers. 

  • Where are helical piles being used in Canada?

    Helical pile foundations are used across Canada, and the world, for almost any project you can think of. From 30+ story highrise buildings to hydro utilities infrastructure and rural internet infrastructure, helical piles are used every single day to support industrial and residential construction.
    Some of the projects VersaPile can design and install helical pile foundations for include:● Hydro Utilities Infrastructure● Power Transmission Lines● Battery Energy Storage Systems● Distribution Substations● Transmission Stations● Communication Towers● Internet Infrastructure

  • Are helical piles better than concrete?

    There's no straight-and-easy answer to that question. Which foundation is right for your project depends on a wide range of factors, some of which are:● Location of your jobsite● Type of structure to be supported● Soil composition and conditions● Climate and weather conditions● Expected structural loads
    Once we understand all the factors associated with your project, we can tell you whether or not a helical foundation solution makes sense. If we see that another foundation technology, like concrete, would serve your needs better than we'll be honest and tell you that.

  • How long has VersaPile been in business?

    Our team has been designing and installing helical pile foundations since 2015. In total our employees have a combined total of more than 100 years working in construction and foundations.

  • Does VersaPile install foundations for residential projects?

    VersaPile does provide helical foundation design, engineering, and installation services for large-scale or highly technical residential projects.
    However, we do not perform installations for smaller projects like decks, home additions, fences, garages, etc.
