Sheet Pile Driving
When building a steel structure, such as a large office building or other heavy-duty structure, construction workers will use sheet pile driving methods to install sturdy metal poles into the ground. This helps to add stability and structural integrity to the walls and ceilings of the building. So it's often required in local building codes for safety. When performing sheet pile driving, workers will typically use a mechanical pile driver. Which makes it much easier to dig deeper and drive the poles farther into the ground.
We offer sheet pile driving for some of our larger marine construction projects. Any project that requires additional stability and safety can benefit from mechanical sheet pile driving. So the metal supports can brace the structure and keep it firmly upright. This is important when building marinas, docks, and other structures that are over the water, since a shaky step on this type of walkway can be extremely dangerous.
Our service area at Fender Marine Construction includes Orlando, Florida, as well as the surrounding cities. When we perform the sheet pile driving process, we use a machine that guides the weighted metal up and down on a strong wire. When the weight drops, whether due to hydraulics, diesel, or steam power, the steel beam drops to the ground, and the force creates a hole that keeps the support in place. Steel pile driving should not be attempted by amateur builders; it should only be done by those with experience, such as the members of our team of experts.
