Boardwalk Foundations

CHANCE® Boardwalk and Walkway support systems provide eco-friendly foundations in wetlands, dune crossings, beachfronts, prairies and historical sites. CHANCE® Helical Piles can be installed with portable installation equipment in order to access sensitive areas that require minimal disturbance, also providing increased resistance for boardwalks and walkways that are exposed to flooding and storm surges.

An instant foundation system for environmentally sensitive areas.

The CHANCE® Walkway support system has proven the most economical foundation system in sensitive soils and difficult terrain. Modern compact hydraulic-driven drills have made this the preferred method for soil engineers and contractors. The helical piles are engineered to transfer projected loads to bearing-capable strata below weak soils, isolating the structure’s integrity from seasonal changes in the surface-layer conditions.

Benefits of using the CHANCE® Helical Piles for boardwalk foundations:

  • Eco-friendly – minimal mobilization impact
  • Can install in limited access sites
  • No vibrations and minimal noise disturbance
  • No spoils
  • Made from recycled steel
  • High up-lift capacity
