Scope

Michels Construction, Inc. installed various forms of earth retention systems using steel sheet pile, secant shafts and drilled shafts. The customer required deep foundations in an area with a high water table. The earth retention systems Michels installed allowed crews to pour the foundations in a dry working area.

The project included the installations of 650 feet of 30-foot-long sheets, and 32 880mm diameter shafts 55-feet deep. Once the earth retention systems were in place, crews dewatered the area and installed one 42-inch shaft 70 feet deep.
