“I have always been interested in “How?”. How can I make this project and my world better? This question lead me to learn about Pin Foundations over 15 years ago. Since then, I have designed PFI foundations into projects a number of times. I find the specification process straightforward and really like how efficient and low-impact the installation process is. Perhaps the best testimonial I can give is that my personal home is supported by a PFI Ground Frame design.”
