Before the installation of production piles, the General Contractor, Benton and Sons Marine Construction, eliminated potential obstacles, such as partial removal of pedestrian bridges, including utilities. This would allow for barge access around the island.
Upon helical piling termination, all helical piles were cut to their required length. Pile production included a full-time Quality Control person to oversee pile testing and installation. Pile monitoring and certification was performed by Forge Engineering of Naples, Florida.
The helical piles were installed by Coastal Foundation Solutions (SS), a Certified Installer of “CHANCE” Helical Foundations Systems.
