Undisclosed Location | General Contractor: Team TMS

Project plans called for (3) 14” dia. x 88.5’ auger cast piles with design loads of 45 kips compression, 25 kips tension, and 6 kips lateral. Due to concerns about limited headroom as well as the significant weight-of-hammer zone in the top 40’ of soil, several options were considered in lieu of auger cast. Ultimately an 8" diameter x 50' round pipe helical pile was chosen for a number of reasons, including its high capacity, resistance to buckling, and ability to be installed in a limited-headroom environment.

Designed and installed 46 grouted tiebacks as part of the remediation of a damaged bulkhead at the marina. Due to limited access traditional tieback rigs could not be utilized. Technical Foundations designed a unique platform-mounted drill rig that was suspended over the water in order to drill the 8” diameter grouted anchors that were installed through the existing bulkhead.
