Location

Deerfield, IL

Solution

Replaced failing wood beam, posts and footings in crawl space. Temporary shoring and jacking equipment was installed to support the structure while the old structural members were being replaced. The jacking equipment was used to incrementally jack up the floor joists at the beam location to a level position. Once the level position was achieved, a new steel beam and a steel reinforced concrete footing was installed.
