This site is very fragile and our screw piles protected the trees and root systems enabling a new boardwalk to be built for […]
This outdoor shower is built on Vancouver Island Postech screw piles. The uneven nature of the ground and its poor quality made a concrete foundation nearly impossible to build. How ever with the quick install screw piles the shower was immediately ready to build!

Six screw piles installed among the trees in Metchosin for a future sauna and deck. Our small 39 inch wide excavator is unobtrusive and is ideal to install screw pile foundations in places concrete won’t work.
We would like to welcome the newest member of the Vancouver Island Postech team! A 9,000lb Bobcat E35 excavator combined with new auger drivers with 12,000lb and 8,000lbs of torque. This combination has highly effective results such as the ability to drive a 7ft long pile with a 14inch helix into the ground in two minutes. With a rig […]
We installed twelve screw piles in a midden to extend Paul’s house. Each individual pile has a weight bearing capacity of over 15,000lbs. All twelve piles were installed and immediately ready to build on in just three hours. If Paul were to use a traditional concrete foundation the prep work alone would take days to complete. We saved […]

These new piles will have a concrete pad poured on them […]
