Superintendent – Tim Carruthers

Foundation Pile Inc. performed 198- 12.75″ Edttex piles being installed to a 40′ depth for a seismic upgrade to the existing hospital. The piles are torqued in using a limited access Tubex machine due to the limited site access. Compression and dynamic testing were performed to confirm capacities. The Edttex method was the ideal pile type for this upgrade as noise and vibration were major concerns so that the hospital could maintain operable. Foundation’s specialty piles are growing in popularity for projects that demand high loads with site restrictions.

Equipment Utilized:

  • Tubex Rig
  • Hydraulic crane
