Case Study: Post Tension Foundation Failure Repair


In my last blog, I discussed in general some common things we are seeing in post tension foundation failures. In this blog I will discuss one case in particular that illustrates this.

In 2016, we were contacted by a home owner with serious distress in her home. The initial observations of the home included:


A complete Level B Investigation was ordered and when complete noted the following additional items:

PT Foundation Failure


With the information, and with the help of a local registered engineering specialist for post tensioned systems, Rob Hamblin PE, we put together the following repair plan:

PT Foundation Failure Shoring of Laod Bearing Walls

PT Foundation Failure Live End

Once completed the shoring was removed and the residence could have the cosmetic restoration completed and the residence could be fully occupied.
