About US

Putting steel in ground with passion since 1999.

Based in Pleasantville, New Jersey SJHP began as a certified installer of A.B. Chance helical piles and grew into a multifaceted geotechnical construction firm to meet the growing needs of the construction industry. With strict adherence to safety and zero liability claims we continue to lead the industry in compliance to OSHA standards.
Today SJHP operates in several states for leading clients involved in foundation support, subsurface piling, environmental remediation, load testing and value engineering.



SJHP has over 19 years of in the field, hands on experience driving a variety of piles, building walkways and general construction. From a single pile job to support a residential porch to the famous Asbury Park Boardwalk; we build it right, no matter what.


Safety is our number one priority and our record shows just that. Zero accidents and zero liability claims. Our employees are OSHA trained and certified with regular refreshers. Safety meetings are held each morning before the start of work to insure total compliance. A clean, safe worksite is mandatory at SJHP.


Sometimes it’s important to be able to switch gears during a project. Dealing with the subsurface environment can present unknown challenges no matter how much pre-construction investigation has been completed. At SJHP we understand our client’s needs and go the extra mile every time.

Technological advancement

When choosing a contractor it is important to know that their equipment is state-of-the-art. We use only the best of the best and we own our equipment. We supply certified documentation of calibration to be able to prove that our means and methods meet and exceed the client’s requirements.

Competitive prices

Our prices are based on what the project will cost us and a little extra for profit so we can invest in the future and pay our employees a living wage. The advantage that we offer is prompt service, outstanding workmanship, fast turnaround time and ethical business practices.

Information related to Hurricane Sandy remediation work.




SJHP submitted the winning bid to rebuild the iconic boardwalk at Asbury Park that was destroyed during Supers Storm Sandy. Two hundred and sixty four A.B. Chance, Pull Down Micro Piles were installed to approximately 35’ below grade and reached a required holding capacity of 80 KIPS (ultimate). The pile installation was completed in three weeks in spite of delays caused by the discovery of an old bulkhead that had been buried for years.

"Once desired depth was achieved, the pile was trimmed to the above-grade desired height. From there, a beam- seat bracket secured each pile to the wooden boardwalk beams. The boards of the boardwalk were then added atop the beams to complete the project.

Led by Art Koziol, President of South Jersey Helical Piers, two installation teams worked simultaneously to install the 264 CHANCE® Helical Pulldown® Micropiles for the foundation of the reconstructed boardwalk. The new boardwalk portion stretched from the Convention Hall on 5th Avenue to the 4th Avenue Pavilion on 4th Avenue."

"This foundation system was chosen for its no-vibration installation due to the proximity of nearby stores, restaurants, and theaters, many of which are glass-faced, and the Asbury Park Convention Center, a national landmark." - Caitlin Haffert in Pile Buck magazine
