ECP receives an evaluation report for their patented steel piering systems. These reports consist of thorough laboratory testing and analysis procedures.


On May12th, 2010 Earth Contact Products announced that they received a Product Evaluation Report for their patented steel piering system. Evaluation report #PER-09040 was approved and published by PEI after a thorough testing and analysis procedure.

Laboratory testing by the accredited engineering testing lab began in the fall of 2009 and continued until early 2010. The highly regarded Product Evaluation Report also required a complete manufacturing facility inspection along with quality control review and verification. Robotic welding procedures and a technologically advanced facility was credited with much of the quality control approval.

Earth Contact Products (ECP) manufactures a complete lineup of foundation repair and helical anchors for the residential and commercial construction industry. Their steel push piers have become the industry standard for underpinning systems across the country. ECP’s nationwide approved contractor network is trained and support by the manufacturer with product and engineering support.

The annual Titan Installation School teaches proper installation and testing of the titan hollow bar system to contractors around the country.



June 15-17, 2010

Once again TEI will hold our annual Titan installation school from June 15-17. This school trains the attendees on the proper installation and testing of the Titan hollow bar system. Included is instruction on general load calculations for micropiles, how hydraulic drifters operate and case studies from local hollow bar contractors. This is an excellent opportunity for contractors that are thinking about getting into the hollow bar business to see first hand how hollow bars are installed and what equipment investment is required. The Titan school is also perfect for sending employees to get training, but most of all it is a great opportunity to meet other contractors from around the country and discuss ways for everyone to improve their business. This school is held with the help of Contech Systems, the Titan Ischebek and Obermann distributor for North America.

Helical pier installation was used to support the foundation for the new Ocean House Luxury Hotel in Watch Hill, Rhode Island.



After two weeks at the new Ocean House Luxury Hotel, New England Foundation and Stabilization Co. completed the ECP (Earth Contact Products) Helical Torque Anchors to support the proposed event tent on the south lawn of the property that overlooks Watch Hill.

The Helical anchors were recessed into lawn boxes that can be accessed when the tent is erected and will provide support to the tent guy wires, allowing proper tensile support in a strong wind load area, and ease of erecting and removing the tent during event set-up and tear down.




   Once the piers were installed they were cut and capped using a custom pier cap that was welded to the pier pipe and connected to a clevis that will allow for easy attachment of the tent guy wires. 


Due to a septic leaching field, one line of the Helical Anchors had to be designed to straddle between the septic fields and the guy wire attachments were connected via channel welded to the Helical Anchors. 


Once the anchors were installed and capped, the site contractor graded the lawn and placed the lawn boxes that will be recessed into the lawn.   

Due to cold weather striking early, the new turf was not able to be placed, therefore temporary lawn was hydro-seeded and fenced off while the remaining landscaping continues. Next spring this lawn will be ready for use and tents will be assembled and disassembled with ease for events along this beautiful shore line.
