Typical components for hillside foundation repair in Los Angeles

Hillside Foundation Repair Components

Caissons or Piles

With hillside foundation construction, a pile is used to carry or transfer the load of a structure to the bedrock below the ground surface. Whenever possible, drilling is accomplished by using heavy machinery with an auger attachment. Sometimes, however, specific hillside foundation repair conditions dictate that the shafts be hand-dug.

For a typical caisson, a round hole is dug or bored into the bedrock. A steel cage of reinforcing bars is then constructed and placed into the hole. Then – following inspections by the soil engineer, the structural engineer and the building inspector – concrete foundation is poured into the caisson around the steel reinforcing cage.

Grade Beams

A grade beam is a continuous reinforced concrete beam that distributes the load to bearing points (such as pile caps or caissons) or transfers the load to the ground. When used as continuous interior floor supports, grade beams provide strong support with respect to controlling seismic movement.

Sinai Construction has literally saved our home and the homes of our two neighbors from sliding off a steep cliff. After interviewing 3 other companies we chose Sinai due to their extensive experience and reputation. The work involved an extremely complicated caisson work that went as deep as 70 feet. Our structural foundation engineer who is a UCLA professor was very complimentary upon the completion of work as to the abilities of Sinai's crew to deliver this complicated foundation work on time and budget and without any corrections needed from him.
