Project Location: Forney, TX
Overview: LTC was contracted by Russo Corporation to perform bi-directional load testing on two ACIP test piles. The piles were 30″ and 24” diameter and excavated to around 60 feet each. Russo installed an instrumented beam with attached 750 ton and 250 ton jack (respectively) into each hole. The test program enabled the value-engineering of the production piles, resulting in significant time and material savings for the client. Once again we thank Russo for their professionalism and assistance. Also, we are not sure if this should be considered an on-shore or off-shore project. Any thoughts?
