The project was located in “the boroughs”, Brooklyn, NYC. This means a mandatory load test. Shore tested for 50kip compression per NY Dept. of Building Code.
Strategy and Action
Shore used the ASTMD-1143, Standard Test for Piles Under Static Axial Compressive Load Method – the “quick test”.
Ultimately, Shore Installed 88 SS175’s new construction piles with a 10″/12″/14″/14″ helical configuration. These are uncased helical pull down micro-piles with a 6″ grout column.
