Not all projects allow for open site access. The AHS Renal Dialysis Unit was to be installed inside of an existing building, and with substantial loading requirements the client needed a foundation solution that would be both economical and feasible. Originally designed with belled piles, the client wanted to look for alternatives that allow for small equipment to enter and exit the building and install the foundation given the height restrictions.
Reaction engineers worked on a design including battered and vertical piles with concrete pile caps, while utilizing various machines for the various height restrictions in the building. Reaction incorporated the expertise of its operators to work on a design and install strategy that would allow for the most efficient and safe installation. Reaction was able to work inside the building amongst other trades to complete the pile installation that would go on to sufficiently support the Renal Dialysis Unit at a fraction of the cost of the belled pile option.
