Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler Contractor Services – Orlando, Florida

Universal Studios Emergency Shoring/Repair Project Using Giken ECO 1400S Silent Piler for Temporary Shoring for 20ft Excavation in Orlando, Florida

The Press-In System (using Giken ECO1400 S Silent Piler) was used to install temporary shoring for 20ft excavation in Orlando, Florida. Groundwater levels and gravel layers from previous construction would not allow the site contractor to dewater the proposed foundation of a new attraction down to the levels needed. Previous attempts at slide rails and short sheeting resulted in lost time and schedule. Blue Iron was contracted to install a deep sheet pile wall, along with a jet grout plug to prevent any hydrostatic uplift from the excavation which was adjacent to an existing ride foundation.

    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 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 1 layer of the seafloor: Loose- to Medium-Dense Fine Sands. We piled AZ19-700 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.
