Supporting Another Link in the Supply Chain

or How We're Working on a State-of-the-Art NJ Distribution Facility

We're starting to feel really at home in New Jersey! Our most recent visit to the state finds our crew at 429 Delancy Street in Newark, on the site of a recent refinery that requires massive demolition of buildings and their foundations before ground improvement work for a new warehouse can begin. 

We're hard at work installing 7,000 controlled modulus column (CMC) rigid inclusions to depths of 25-40 feet with multiple rigs to support the new facility.

“By working closely with the site contractor to obtain in-place survey information of existing foundations and piles that are either removed or will remain in place, we were able to come up with a ground improvement system that economically avoids conflicts and reduces time dealing with obstructions,” says Project Manager J.W. Ramp. “Our crews are great at working on these large warehouse projects, where we can implement multiple rigs working in tandem to accelerate schedules for our client.”

We feel like we're right back in NOLA again as we coordinate our work with the local airport, Newark Liberty, taking special safety precautions when raising and lowering the CMC rig masts. Our work will continue through the autumn months.

We’ve worked on close to 20 projects in close proximity to airports, so we are very familiar with working with the airport personnel and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). We are often working near active runways; in fact, we just successfully completed a project with similar safety requirements next to Teterboro Airport, also in New Jersey.
