Brighton Avenue Impact® Rammed Aggregate Piers
Construction of a new residential duplex on Brighton Avenue in Halifax Nova Scotia which occupies 3,600 sq.ft of a very small lot.
The site subsurface conditions comprised of a fill extending up to 15 feet.
Due to the size of the site and proximity of nearby houses over-excavation and replacement was not feasible without encroaching on neighboring properties. AMCON designed and installed the Geopier Impact® System, a ground improvement system, to support the footings and floor slab of the new duplex. Piers were installed up to 15 feet deep using the Impact T Mandrel eliminating the need to over-excavate.
