Installed (1321) helical piles for multiple tank foundations inside the levy for the Mississippi River.
(5) Different size tank foundations were installed for a new distribution center.
Elevation of the site was 9 ft. below river elevation during the Delta rainy season. The project time restraints were the biggest challenge. Once the notice to proceed was issued the foundations were to be in place by the end of April.
A hard sand layer was encountered at 60 – 65 ft in depth with no bedrock in this area. The helical leads had to be changed with this discovery to a 5 blade 16-inch helix in order to lock into this zone of hard sand.
