The DANBRO/CHANCE family is greatly diminished today after the sudden death of our good friend and colleague, Paul Mauer of Levelift Systems. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and all whose lives were touched by his luminous spirit. May our good friend rest in peace.
The Marsh Discovery Trail Sandy Recovery Project for the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission was completed this past July. The scope of work consisted of repairs and additions to the docks and walkways on the nature trails in Lyndhurst, NJ. Approximately 100 vertical and 20 battered CHANCE® helical piles were used to support all areas damaged and in need of replacement, courtesy of Hurricane Sandy.
With technological advances constantly in the news and new software and gadgets debuting every day, it is not uncommon to hear the term “the cloud” come up in conversation – outside of the daily weather report, that is. Over the past few months, DANBRO has been migrating towards this mystifying cloud with the implementation of our new CRM system.
That’s right, it’s no coincidence that little kid Steve G. watched Mr. Wizard on TV and then grew up to become an engineer. That guy would mesmerize me and then, of course, after every show, I would be in my basement making a mess. Most of the time it was good fun but, occasionally, it got me into trouble.

In addition to home elevation and infrastructure strengthening, NY Rising, New York’s official storm recovery movement, is assisting marinas in their efforts to rebuild after being destroyed or damaged by Superstorm Sandy in October 2012.
The CHANCE® Helical Pulldown Micropile was used to support and secure the famed Asbury Park, NJ boardwalk. The HPM system was chosen over traditional wooden piles and bulkheads due to the low vibration, limited access, and quick installation benefits.
