The Environmental Benefits of GoliathTech Helical Piles

A SMALLER CARBON FOOTPRINT THAN CONCRETE

Today, the health of our planet and its inhabitants is more than ever a pressing concern. At GoliathTech, we take matters of the environment seriously.

For starters, we’ve implemented the ISO 14001:2015 standard for excellence in environmental management to help safeguard our planet and its resources. A growing number of companies are becoming certified in this way and we’re proud to lead in this area. GoliathTech stands by its products, methods, and technologies and we’re continually looking for ways to lower our carbon footprint through fine-tuning our processes and working with reusable materials.

 

MINIMAL FOOTPRINT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

It’s a fact that every ton of concrete that’s manufactured puts one ton of greenhouse gases into the air. Just imagine when you see a cityscape filled with skyscrapers, how much pollution has been released into the atmosphere during the production of all that concrete. From the machinery and materials used, to the processes involved, building with concrete leaves a larger footprint on the environment than Helical Piles.

For instance, if you were doing a solar panel project at a cottage near a lake, GoliathTech could easily go in with a mini excavator, install the foundation of helical piles and (set the solar rack and panels in as little as one day. Helical piles, unlike concrete, require no curing time and can be built upon immediately.  There is no need for heavy machinery and a large construction crew to install a helical pile foundation.  There is no extra concrete to dispose of if your project did not use every bit of the concrete that was delivered in the Concrete Truck. There is also no need for digging with Helical piles unlike when using concrete. Check out the range of solar panel applications we do, as well as other renewable energy applications.

 

REUSABLE IS THE NEW GREEN

Helical piles are 100 percent reusable and recyclable, which means that we can easily go back in with a mini excavator, move the piles to another location later on, and there’s literally zero footprint. We can replace or remove GoliathTech piles using small machinery if your project plans change. Using less energy makes more environmental sense and it makes sense from the standpoint of not disrupting the actual site more than is necessary.

This cost-effective, and environmentally friendly structural technology is equally useful for commercial enterprises, such as agricultural tents and wind turbines, as it is for residential applications, such as garden sheds and backyard pools.
