Brooklyn Pulldown Pile

Limited access and mobilization issues drove the decision to use helical piles, A successful load test on a Pulldown pile confirmed the viability of in a challenging soil environment.

Project Summary:

  • Helical Pile Type: Grouted Pulldown micropiles
  • # of Helical Piles: 126
  • Location: Brooklyn, NY
  • Installation Depth: 40′-60′
  • Equipment Used: Kubota Excavator and 12K Drive Head
  • Challenge/Unique Aspect: The soil profile indicated low blow count material in addition to an urban fill layer. A Grouted Helical Micropile was used to deal with buckling and laterial concerns while also addressing access and mobilization issues.
