Phase II of the Brodstone Memorial Hospital required helical piles be installed in pile caps next to the existing structure. The helicals were required so that no additional load would be placed on the exist- ing structure since the pile caps were next to the existing foundation. There would be a total of (43) helical piles on the project ranging from 20 kips ultimate capacity to 130 kips ultimate capacity. The piles diameters would be 2.87” OD, 3.5” OD and 4.5” OD. The depth of the piles ranged from 40’ to 60’ in depth.

The project also required (4) 3.5” diameter push piles to support the existing structure at the elevator pit. The piles were installed to a depth of 60’ and reach an ultimate capacity of 100 kips. Two addition- al piles were installed on the existing structure next to the elevator pit.

WCI contacted Performance Piers and requested assistance in designing the correct helical piles for the project. Using the deep excavation helical pile program with the information provided in the soil report and the loads shown on the plans Performance Piers provided WCI a formative and competitive proposal with the Empire Piers helical anchors.
