Secant Pile Foundation System

This secant wall project in Chicago enclosed and area 250’ x 330’. The secant pile foundation system was selected due to the close proximity to property lines and existing structures that would have made excavating a standard foundation impossible. The project consisted of 479 cylindrical forms that were produced in triples, doubles and single cylinders making installation go faster. The individual forms were 36” in diameter and 24” deep.

Universal Foam Products is the industry leader in secant forms and provides EPS forms throughout the United States and Canada shipping from dozens of locations nationwide. Over the years we have developed numerous design enhancements that make our forms install fast and with greater accuracy.
