IHOP Drainage Collapse Emergency Shoring/Repair Project Using Giken ECO 1400S Silent Piler for Temporary Shoring in Meridian, Mississippi

The Press-In System (using Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler) was used to install temporary shoring in Meridian, Mississippi. The parking lot of an IHOP restaurant recently collapsed due to the failure of an underground corrugated metal pipe causing an unstable slope adjacent to the building. Hemphill Construction was selected to immediately stabilize the utility and protect the newly opened restaurant. Hemphill selected Blue Iron to install steel sheeting using the press-in method to avoid potential settlement or sloughing of the unstable slope.

    Sheet Piling Borehole Data

    Borehole data are direct measurements of temperature from boreholes drilled into the Earth’s crust. In Mississippi, 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 Temporary Shoring contractor that has the experience you can depend on to understand the earth’s surface. For this ECO1400 S Silent Piler Temporary Shoring project, we piled through 2 layers of the seafloor: Lean Firm Clay and Silty Fine Sand. We piled Roll Form Group JZ127 sheets into the ocean floor at L=45ft – 55ft. 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 Mississippi or in the Appalachian Foothills of Mississippi, Blue Iron, LLC can help.

    • Seafloor Layers: 2
    • Seafloor Material 1: Lean Firm Clay
    • Seafloor Material 2: Silty Fine Sand
