Our client, the District of Taylor, reached out to us when they noticed that the soil around their water supply tanks was eroding. Since they were near a slope, there was a danger that the site would collapse without intervention.
The site presented a number of obstacles. Mainly, the soil was very dense and unreceptive to many popular piling methods. In addition to this, the steep slope meant that the site had a very narrow access point.
We were able to bypass the limited site access by using our Movax Sonic Vibratory Pile Driver. The vibratory-head reduces the amount of equipment required for installation to a single vehicle. Our experience and cooperative approach allowed us to create a strong 68m long sheet-pile wall efficiently and with minimal site disturbance.
