Because the soil in Maryland consists of clay, many commercial businesses will experience foundation issues. That's why Matthews Structural Solutions offers commercial foundation repair and structural engineers for businesses in the Maryland area. There are key factors that affect foundations such as land erosion, ground movement, land slopes, water flow patterns, and soil types. All of these factors cause settlement beneath the building's structure that requires underpinning, shoring and piling solutions.

Types of Structural Repair & Structural Engineering in Maryland

Piling Solutions: Piling products include helical piles and augercast piles. Helical piles consist of a central shaft and helical bearing plates that rotate into the ground. The installation process is quick and can be installed in limited access areas. Augercast piles are a cost-effective piling method used to support and stabilize structures such as buildings, bridges, and towers. These type of piles can be installed in poor soil conditions and any type of environment.

Underpinning Solutions: Underpinning involves transferring the structure's load onto a deep foundation element bearing to more suitable soil. Hydraulic and portable equipment are transported to the site. After the piers are installed and load tested, the structure is stabilized and restored back to its original state. Underpinning is used to support and stabilize weak, unstable foundations.

Shoring Solutions: Matthews Structural Solutions offers shoring methods to repair new and existing retaining walls, stabilize cracks and straighten bowing foundation walls. We use 12"x26" steel plates that have two embossed ribs, a 4" square, and a 10-gauge square washer for added strength.
