Hidden Creek Middle School

Project Location: Burleson, TX

Overview: The suburbs of Dallas-Ft. Worth are growing, fast!  Russo Corporation won a contract to install piled foundations for a new middle school in the bedroom community of Burleson and needed a load test, pronto. They called LTC on a Tuesday and we were installing the test pile that Friday.  The 24” diameter, 49-foot-deep augercast test pile was tested to an equivalent top load of over 750 kips.
