Sheet Piles, advantages of below grade foundations
Conventional underground foundations have design, construction, and operational factors that at grade methods do not. These costly variables have made traditional below grade structures more than two times that of at grade. In spite of the cost difference, functional requirements like building height and parking/tenant ratios make below grade construction a necessity. In the last decade, sheet piles have been designed for this application as a permanent wall element.
The time and material savings, coupled with speed of construction and versatile installation methods are changing the economics of subterranean basements.
