Downtown Disney Causeway Stormwater Retention Project Using Giken ECO 1400S Silent Piler for Permanent Cofferdam in Lake Buena Vista, FL
The Press-In System (using Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler) was used to install a retaining wall/settlement barrier in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The Silent Piler was used to install the steel sheet pile cofferdam/causeway to minimize the impact to the operating themed attraction as well as the very tight tolerances required. The entire causeway was designed based on a radius of the entire length. The permanent structure required precise installation to allow for the pre-cast concrete panels to be installed after installation. The steel sheet piles are carrying the entire bridge load from the walkways above.

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 Stormwater Retention contractor that has the experience you can depend on to understand the earth’s surface. For this ECO1400 S Silent Piler Stormwater Retention project, we piled through 1 layer of the seafloor: Silty Fine Sand. We piled Arcelor Mital AZ26-700 sheets into the ocean floor at L=45ft. 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 Florida, Blue Iron, LLC can help.
