Soma Hotel

Project Location: South San Francisco CA
Project Manager:  Darren Riddle

Consisting of 400, 14X117 H-Piles to a depth of 200′ driven to bedrock, the Soma Hotel project consisted of site challenges during construction. The piles had the top 50′ coated with Epoxy coating in order to provide additional life span to the structure. Having this coating applied to the piles prior to installation, is a first in the Mission Bay area. The site footprint was approximately 200’x150′, making the offloading, loading and storage of piles a difficult task. Foundation safely and efficiently met these challenges head on for successful completion.

Key Equipment Utilized:

  • D62 Diesel Hammer
  • 4000 Crawler Crane
  • ABI Rig for installation of sheet piles
