Queen Street NSLC Impact® Rammed Aggregate Piers
Construction of a new Nova Scotia Liquor Commission Store on Queen Street in Halifax next to the existing Sobeys.
Fill site consisting of dense sand, cobbles, boulders and debris including wood and bricks.
As an alternative to over excavation and replacement, AMCON designed and installed the Geopier Impact® System, a ground improvement system, to support the footings and floor slab of the new NSLC. Piers were installed up to 16 feet deep using the Impact T Mandrel eliminating the need to truck any fill off site and also eliminating any dewatering required while also increasing the bearing capacity of the soil.
