Project Test Pile

Project work continues. On the 13th we dug and poured a test pile so we can confirm the soil bearing capacity. We are now waiting for the concrete to cure so we can do load tests on the pile to measure load vs deflection. In total we are looking at having to do about 320 piles for this project. Thankfully we can proceed with this pile work during the monsoon season with minimal disruption and once the pile work is completed we will be through the bulk of the wet season.

We continue to receive additional approvals that we have been waiting for. Only one minor approval remaining.
