Sheet Piling Borehole Data
Borehole data are direct measurements of temperature from boreholes drilled into the Earth’s crust. In Florida, you have multiple layers of sand located beneath the Ocean. Every geological area has different Borehole data so it’s important to hire a Giken Silent Piler Road Widening (Mult-Use Path) contractor that has the experience you can depend on to understand the earth’s surface. For this ECO1400 S Silent Piler Road Widening (Mult-Use Path) project, we piled through 2 layers of the seafloor: Fine Sand and Silty Fine Sand. We piled PZC14 sheets into the ocean floor at L=20ft. Blue Iron, LLC has the Giken Silent Piler experience you can depend on to finish the job at hand. Whether you are in the Gulf Coast of Florida or the Eastern Shores of Louisiana, Blue Iron, LLC can help.
