Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Foundation Engineering: Current Principles and Practices


This paper decribes the generalized subsurface conditions, pile evaluation and load test program, pile and piling contractor selection, production pile installation, and quality assurance during pile driving for the fast track paper mill project. A problem with pile and pile cap heave and lateral movement is discussed. The step-by-step sequence of events that resulted in the project being completed within the tight schedule is presented, from pre-design through pile construction.
