New Video “Harden Powerline Infrastructure | New Flood-proof Powerline Foundations”

Our hearts go out to the areas recently hit by hurricanes, floods and other natural disasters these past few months. The time it takes to rebuild damaged structures and buildings can leave people without power and other essentials for some time. It hurts residences and businesses alike, and as a business headquartered just north of Houston, we hear the needs loud and clear. Hardening Infrastructure with HD Piling It’s true that hardening infrastructure using the same methods that failed before is design failure. APE Drilling has spent years researching & developing superior methods to harden infrastructure and keep the power and other essentials flowing to the people, even in the Read more

Merck Pharmaceutical will add TWO FLOORS to their existing building with help from APE MEXICO

Merck Pharmaceuticals provides veterinary and healthcare services for the medical industry, world-wide. Our team at APE Mexico went out to meet them in the urban heart of Mexico City, where they expressed a need to expand one of their local facilities. They envisioned adding two new floors to one of their current buildings, which would create more real estate to meet their needs. The current structure at the time, however, couldn’t support the extra weight they calculated would be added to the current load. Additional re-enforcement to the foundation would be needed to support the new floor plan. Luckily, we were there to help.   DESIGNED & DELIVERED We quickly Read more

APE Keeps the Power on while Fixing Powerline Towers in Saskatchewan

APE has done it again! This time in Northern Saskatchewan, Canada. Sask Power reached out to us with a task to repair eleven powerline transmission towers that had started leaning, and even sinking! The shifting underground terrain had left their foundations unstable, and in need of a superior design, with greater longevity and resistance to subterranean changes over time. Our excavator-mounted HD Drivers allowed us to drill into the Canadian Shield, the Earth’s oldest, hardest dense geology, and to install high-strength grouted micropiles deep into the Precambrian-formed land to produce a foundation that would support the transmission line towers, indefinitely. Together with Ampjack, we presented Sask Power with a finished, Read more

ConExpo Re-cap: What’s next for Foundation Construction?

The air was rich with innovation. Cranes, drill rigs, and leader systems erected like skyscrapers. A new city had formed around a once-vacant parking space. It was a city of the future, and a sign of what’s to come for the Construction Industry in 2017 and beyond. This was Con Expo 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada… and it was brilliant. Booth Highlights APE’s booth was set up right in the main vein of the Silver Lot. With us we brought all of the traditional trade favorites for building foundations: samples of our Diesel Hammers, Hydraulic Impact Hammers, Vibratory Hammers, and even samples of our HD Drivers from our APE Drilling Read more
