Wafflemat/Helical Anchor 'Hybrid' Solution, Glen Ellen, California
Attached is a 12-picture photo sequence of a project in Glen Ellen, California (near
Sonoma), utilizing a "Hybrid" foundation system with both our Winslow Geo Anchor
and Wafflemat products.
The construction location has highly expansive soils, and 53 anchors (combinations
of 12.75" and 4" in diameter) were installed to various depths -- vertically as
well as in a "battered" formation -- to support a large pool. 344 Waffleboxes were
then tied in to support the deck area, and complete the foundation. The alternative
would have included drilling very deep piers and filling with concrete for the pool
area, and a 12" Uniform Thickness Foundation for the deck -- a much more costly
and time-consuming approach.
MKM & Associates performed structural, Riptide Construction the general contracting.
A really cool example of using both the anchors and W/mat in a dual, "hybrid," application
solution that not only saved time and money, but provide a superior-performing solution
as well. Call us at 925.683.2739, and let's discuss the foundation needs of your
