Scope

Michels Construction, Inc. completed its first foundations project in Seattle by installing 23 permanent soldier piles and 768 square feet of lagging for an earth retention wall at Yesler Terrace.

The crew conquered the challenges of a small site and a steep slope to complete the project in one week. Michels developed a plan to set up a crane below the wall and a top drive drill rig above the wall to safely execute construction.

Projects

Michels scope of work is to install 242 drilled shafts to support the piers for anew bridge. The installation of the drilled shafts was completed with the simultaneous use of up to four drill rigs. Utilizing barges, 233 drilled shafts were installed in the river. Michels crews also installed 7-foot and 10-foot permanent steel casing into bedrock for each shaft.
