Client: Consigli Construction Company, Inc.
HBF designed and installed an excavation support system approximately 200′ long to allow for construction of a new multi-story hotel directly against an existing property line. This system supported excavations of up to 21′ and allowed our customer to place concrete directly against the shoring wall, maximizing the building footprint and minimizing the time required to complete the foundations and begin erecting steel.
In addition to the tight tolerance requirement, HBF had to design and install an excavation support system that would allow for excavation through weathered rock and into rock suitable for supporting a heavily loaded foundation. We were able to accomplish this by using our drilling equipment to install drilled in place soldier piles. Lastly, the system had to be installed utilizing methods that would not transmit any vibration to the electrical transmission equipment at the adjacent property.
