Komatsu Mining Corporate Campus

Michels Construction, Inc. installed 4,500 driven pipe piles to support construction of a new office building, parking structure, sky bridge, and mining manufacturing plant on a 60-acre brownfield site.

The Michels Construction Inc. team assisted with design of driven pipe piles to reduce costs. The crew used four cranes to complete the project ahead of an aggressive schedule.

Work on brownfield sites poses unique challenges. Crews encountered large underground obstructions that needed removal prior to driving pipe pile into designed locations.
