Foundations Designed for Your Community

Most foundations in Northern Communities aren't designed for the tough conditions you face. We design & install helical pile foundations that will provide sustainable, steadfast support for generations to come

Indigenous people, supporting Indigenous communities

Indigenous Communities are facing a housing crisis.
Houses are missing exterior doors, windows on buildings don't close properly, walls are cracking, and mold is growing in walls and ceilings.
Most of these problems can be traced to one thing: the foundations used in Northern Communities are not designed for the tough winter conditions you face. At VersaPile we work with communities like yours to provide a faster, safer, more effective foundation solution.

  • Faster and easier to install than concrete, performs better in winter

  • Will not sink, shift, bend, or break

  • Designed for harsh winter climates and difficult ground conditions

  • No spoilage like concrete, can be stored outside

Where Can You Use Helical Pile Foundations?

A helical pile foundation can be used under virtually any structure in place of a concrete or driven pile solution, but here's some specifics...

Residential Housing

From single-family dwelling to multi-unit structures, helical piles are perfect as housing foundations in Indigenous and Remote Communities. Because helical piles have great frost resistance, prevent foundation shifting, and can be installed in poor soils, they're ideal for the unique conditions in your community.

    Single Family Dwellings

    Multi-Unit Buildings

    Cabins & Hunt Camps

    Temporary Housing

Community / Commercial

Whether you're building a new health center or a large community complex with multiple services, helical piles are suited to the task. Capable of supporting large and heavy structures, a helical foundation will ensure the investments you make into your community will remain sturdy and safe for years to come.

    Heath & Community Centers

    Bridges, Docks, Piers

    Schools & Educational Facilities

    Outbuildings, Garages, Storage Sheds

Industrial / Development

As more companies are looking to Northern Canada for natural resources to develop, it's their legal obligation to include your community on any development happening on your land. Helical piles are excellent industrial high-capacity foundations ready to offer heavy-duty support for the mining, forestry, and energy industries

    Oil & Gas Pipelines

    Forestry Infrastructure

    Mining Equipment & Infrastructure

    Work Camp Housing

Services We Offer Indigenous & Remote Communities

Geotechnical Investigations

Having a strong understanding of the soil conditions at your site is pivotal for our team to design a value-engineered foundation that delivers the support you need. If you haven't performed a geotechnical investigation or would like to confirm a previous investigation, we can help.

  •

    VersaPile has built strong relationships with geotechnical engineers that are deeply experienced in testing and analysing soil conditions in Central Canada. 
    We offer full-stack geotechnical investigations that help uncover any potential challenges or issues with your site. You'll receive a thourough and detailed geotechnical report that highlights any conditions you need to be aware of.
    If you're planning a long-term multi-phase project, ask us how you can get a complete geotechnical investigation that covers all phases of your project.
    Let our team uncover the story of your soil, design a better foundation for your project, and save you from unexpected costs or conditions.

In-House Design & Engineering

Designing a sturdy, streamlined, and cost-effective helical pile foundation doesn't happen by accident. Our team has years of experience planning and engineering helical foundations for transmission & distribution projects. We'll help you get the right foundation design.

  •

    Planning a helical pile foundation isn't like other technologies like concrete or driven piles.

    It takes an engineer with a keen understanding of a helical pile's unique properties and interactions with the soil to create an efficient and value-engineered solution.

    We can help you with everything from full-stack foundation engineering services to reviews of your own foundation design. Often times, we can help our clients save money and time by uncovering design efficiencies.

    Our in-house engineers rigorously review every foundation design to guarantee safety and performance. We do not practice "rubber stamp" engineering at VersaPile.

    Don't waste money or lose time on an inefficient foundation design. We'll help you match the right helical solution to your project. 

Installation & Testing

Installing durable and high-performing foundations for Indigenous Communities demands an exacting level of skill and precision. At VersaPile, we train our team relentlessly to ensure everyone does their part to make the installation process as easy and efficient as possible. Plus, we can perform pile testing to guarantee the performance of your foundation.

  •

    Helical pile foundations for Indigenous Communities are more than just "pipes in the ground". There's an entire science dedicated to understanding the unique, and varied, interactions between helical pile foundations and the soil.
    This is especially true for remote locations where job sites are located in challenging areas with difficult soil.
    Don't sweat the foundation for your next community project. We'll handle the entire installation and testing process for you, from A to Z.

Manufacturing & Fabrication

Once your helical piles are in the ground, they still need to be transformed into a cohesive foundation. This is achieved with components like grillages, pile caps, transitions, and other support structures. Our in-house design and fabrication teams will design an exact solution for your project. 

  •

    In order to tie the helical piles in the ground to the structure they need to support, your project might need a simple pile cap or it could demand a custom-built grillage to distribute loads across multiple piles.
    Our team includes designers and fabricators that can plan and build these structures for your project.

Want to install helical pile foundations in your own community?

We train Indigenous contractors and builders in remote and northern communities to install better foundations for their communities, and beyond, through our First Foundation Program

Why Choose Helical Piles for Your Community

You're probably already familiar with some of the benefits of using helical piles for construction Indigenous and remote communities, but have you considered these?...


Because they require dramatically less equipment than concrete or driven piles and create minimal noise and zero vibrations, a helical solution is safer for your on-site employees


Being stewards of the land means we consider the impact of our construction both now and for future generations. Helical piles are safer for the environment and can be removed without damage or disturbance  

Easier to Store

Concrete mix can quickly spoil if left in the outdoors. Helical piles can be stored outside and, because of their steel construction, won't spoil or degrade

Simple Mobilization

Helical piles are lightweight and require minimal equipment to transport and install, meaning you'll save on hauling heavy and awkward concrete mix and equipment

Peace of Mind

We can monitor, track, and test, every aspect of a helical pile's performance during (and after) installation. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your foundation is unshakable


Our designers and engineers can fix a solution to almost any foundation problem. Whether you face mushy muskeg or dense hard pan, we'll help you lay a sturdy foundation 

How Does the VersaPile Process Work?

The last thing you want on your project is missed deadlines, costly delays, and inefficient systems. That's why we have some of the best systems in the industry, to ensure your project goes smooth and easy.


Design & Engineering

In the design phase, we learn about your project and requirements. Depending on your needs, our team can handle everything from geotechnical investigations to the engineering of the foundation



Great planning and a coordinated team are the pillars of our installation process. By taking the time to create a clear strategy for installation, we'll do everything possible to ensure a zero-delay foundation installation



Our trained crew can perform helical pile foundation testing to guarantee the performance of your helical foundation. Satisfy building codes or simply enjoy peace-of-mind knowing your foundation will perform as intended
