Project Overview – Gypsum Facility – Sweetwater, TX
- 396 Turnkey Drilled Shafts 24 Inches to 66 Inches in Diameter
- 11,400 Total Linear Feet Drilled
The Gypsum Manufacturing Facility consisted of 396 drilled shaft foundations ranging from 24” to 66” of varying depths, totaling over 11,000 linear feet. All drilled shafts required various penetrations into bearing stratum with rock strengths upwards of 20,000 PSI. Unseasonal rain in the area required aggressive de-watering efforts to drill shafts and maintain hole integrity, while setting rebar and placing concrete. Vantage also performed a secondary scope of drilled pier foundations for the installation of (35) 110’ concrete monopoles for the property lighting. Vantage utilized two fully equipped crews to complete the project on time and under budget.
Project Overview – Food Industry Distribution Center Hutchins, TX
- 1,050 Turnkey Drilled Piers
- 20,750 Total Linear Feet Drilled
The distribution center located in Hutchins, TX consisted of (1050) 24-inch drilled shafts of varying depths, totaling over 20,750 linear feet. Vantage provided the engineered design for and performed LPile analysis for all drilled piers on the project. All drilled shafts required various penetrations into competent limestone to achieve proper bearing stratum penetration. At the request of the GC/Owner, Vantage performed above grade forming of 434 shafts from 16”-20” above grade as a cost saving measure that also increased constructability performance. This effort allowed the concrete contractor to begin forming pier caps and slabs while eliminating the need for further excavation. Vantage was able to install the 434 shafts in under a month, reaching up to 495 linear feet drilled and poured per day. Vantage utilized three fully equipped crews to complete the project on time despite the unseasonal weather events that fell upon peak construction times during the project.
