  • Titan Foundations Home Mitigation Team Engineering-1
Titan’s Foundation & Elevation’s Engineering and Design Team consists of two structural PE engineers, HC Engineering and Ramirez Engineering.
Since 2006, HC Engineering has focused on slab elevations across the Gulf area. HC has engineered over 3,500 slab elevations and is Titan’s main engineer. Titan has worked with HC in Louisiana, Texas, Alabama, Florida and New Jersey.

Ramirez Engineering has designed approximately 600 house elevations and foundation designs primary in New Jersey and currently expanding their footprint to work with Titan in Texas.

We work with our engineering teams to partner with the best geotechnical and soil engineers in the region to create an extensive design that best works for your structure. Before any digging starts, our team creates a theoretical engineering design based on what we can assessed and what we have lifted in the past.

The theoretical design is enough to get the project started. After we do the tunneling, excavations and pilings, we will have one of our engineers re-review the design and come up with a new seal-set elevation plan if necessary. This will be submitted to the local building department so we can continue the process of lifting your home with the best knowledge available.

Engineering Process

1. Theoretical Engineering of house at proposal
2. After contract, Geotechnical Soil Test and Report
3. Engineered plans for Building Department, and permit is issued
4. Test piling driven, loaded, and tested for load bearing
5. Grade beams/footing of the house are exposed and reviewed by Engineering Team
6. Revised plan if needed is stamped off by Engineering Team, and resubmitted to Building Department
7. Jack layout and method is signed off by PE Structural Engineer specializing in elevation
8. After pilings are complete, Building Department inspects, and engineers sign off on final layout and check loads capacities
9. After elevation, new footings are installed. All compaction and soil test are approved by engineer, and some modification could be made based on site conditions
10. During the entire process the Building Department, Engineers, and Homeowners are kept up to date on all site conditions and design changes. Site visits are done as required by inspection agencies and engineers.

Titan Foundations and Elevation's Design Group

Titan Foundations and Elevation has our own project designers and landscape designers on staff. Three of them to be exact. Each one is an expert in elevation design through CAD, SketchUp and hand drawings. This level of expertise allows us to give you a rendering of how your structure will look elevated. We will work with you as much as the grant guidelines will allow for the best curb appeal at the end of the project.

Titan works with homeowners, architects, engineers and general contractors in the design and planning of each project. Our goal is to provide you with timely and expert geo-structural engineering support solutions that optimize economy, constructability and schedule.
