Never compromise on a building's foundation or structural integrity.
A good foundation keeps a building from tilting, collapsing, and flying away or rotting away. It repels water and invading animals. It is the first concern when starting new construction or remodeling existing buildings.
For the past 20 years, Quirk has designed and constructed sound foundations and support systems for new construction, remodels, additions, and renovations -- working extensively with the lag sheet pier system first suggested by soils engineer Neil Twelker. Using this technique, he has designed and built foundations without disturbing adjacent structures or plants mere inches away.

The owners of this house wanted to add a basement apartment with outside access and a patio area. Neighboring buildings were just 3 feet on each side -- one building being a large condominium structure. One of the adjacent buildings went only 3 feet deep and the new basement called for 10-foot deep excavation.
Working as a subcontractor, Quirk teamed with the late Dale Hemphill, a soil engineer, to develop a cost-efficient system that maintained the structural integrity of all three buildings, but added the infill basement.
