based Shea Concrete Products manufactured 15 precast pile caps for the pier, measuring 3-ft.
Caption: The precast pile caps, reinforced with galvanized rebar, were set in place and concrete was poured on site to connect the pile caps together.
All elements of the precast pile
caps and columns were cast on site and handled directly by gantry crane or barge crane.
To mitigate the environmental impacts of heavy equipment on the Reedy Creek wetlands at the Animal Kingdom Entrance to Disney World, Walt Disney Imagineering committed to a top-down construction process using precast pile caps, prefabricated deck planks, and steel pipe piles.
The design met Florida Department of Transportation standards, maintained the bridge span and roadway deck configuration, reduced the number of support piles, and simplified the precast pile caps.
The patented process consists of two self-contained gantries capable of performing all the tasks associated with the bridge construction, including precast pile
driving, girder erection, and bent cap construction.
The ground beam system for the Hull development will be manufactured at the Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering precast pile
factory in Nottinghamshire, which is the largest driven pile factory in the UK.
Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering (BBGE) has launched the UK s first driven precast pile cutting system which has the potential to reduce piling waste to zero.
The process also has significant benefits for the environment as each metre of precast pile manufactured and delivered to site in the UK produces around 40-60kg of harmful carbon dioxide gasses.
the supply and installation of precast piles
in the Caspian region.
A total of 3,100 precast piles
and root piles were required for the foundation works alone.
The process consists of a self-contained piece of equipment capable of performing all tasks associated with the bridge construction, including driving the precast piles
, building the bent caps, erecting the 120-foot-long precast girders, and pouring the deck.
