Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler Contractor Services – Seattle, Washington

Homeplate II – Mixed-Use Facility Project Using Giken ECO 1400S Silent Piler for Permanent Underground Parking Garage in Seattle, Washington

The Press-In System (using Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler) was used to install temporary shoring in Seattle, Washington. Sodo Builders Selected Blue Iron to install the steel sheet piles for the permanent underground parking structure to alleviate noise and vibration concerns, maintain tight tolerances, and speed of construction. Blue Iron used the Press-In system to install the sheets into the soft soils, which were very susceptible to liquefaction. The previous piling contractor used a vibratory hammer and experienced significant vibration issues and complaints from the local residents in the area.

    Sheet Piling Borehole Data

    Borehole data are direct measurements of temperature from boreholes drilled into the Earth’s crust. In Washington, 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 Permanent Underground Parking Garage contractor that has the experience you can depend on to understand the earth’s surface. For this ECO1400 S Silent Piler Permanent Underground Parking Garage project, we piled through 1 layer of the seafloor: Soft to Firm/Stiff Clay. We piled AZ37-700 sheets into the ocean floor at L=48ft. Blue Iron, LLC has the Giken Silent Piler experience you can depend on to finish the job at hand. Whether you are on the West Coast of Washington or in the heart of the Greater Metropolitan Area of Seattle, Washington, Blue Iron, LLC can help.
