The sheeting installation phase will be completed on Friday, October 14th. Over the last few weeks there were times when the vibrations were felt throughout campus and it is safe to assume our students did not always appreciate the early wake-up calls. However, as you can see below, sheet pile walls are a critical piece to this project. Thank you all for your patience!
Sheet pile walls are constructed by driving prefabricated sections into the ground.
Each section is strategically placed along the perimeter of the site and a full wall is formed by connecting the joints of adjacent sheet pile sections in sequential installation.
Then, one by one, each section is driven into the ground by a pile driver.
Sheet pile walls provide structural resistance and are most commonly used in deep excavations.
The next phase of construction will be excavation. Stay tuned!
