SHEET & H-PILE

STEVENS provides sheet and H-pile specified for highway, bridge, and heavy engineering/civil construction projects. Our work in sheet and H-pile is done in conjunction with our excavation and civil concrete work.

For over 75 years, we have been providing the foundation for our clients to build their business on.  

STEVENS Sheet And H Pile

 

What Are Sheet and H-pile? 

Sheet pile is used in excavating to help to retain earth as well as provide excavation support. The sheet has interlocking edges made of steel and can be increased in length, usually by bolting or welding. 

Sheet piling can also be used to form retaining walls for water as well.  Sometimes called a seawall or bulkhead, with water on the front side and soil on the backside. 

H-pile is used for deep foundation support in structures like highways, bridges, marine structures, some pre-engineered metal buildings, and other heavy civil engineering and construction projects. 

Due to the design of the H-Pile, it can bear a more significant weight distribution allowing it to handle heavier structures.            

H-pile can be pulled from the ground after many years of use, making them one of the most environmentally friendly piling products. 

 

What are the Benefits of steel H-pile?

There are many benefits to using H-pile in your construction project. Some of them are: 

  • Strength: H-piles are created for being driven into the ground that is difficult for other piles to be driven into. These can be dense soil, gravel, or water-bearing sand.
  • Durable: H-piles are durable and do well in almost every environment.  
  • Environmentally Friendly: H-piles can be used, extracted recycled, and reused. 
  • Versatile: H-piles can be adapted on-site, cut to length to fit the job requirements. 
  • Ideal for Urban settings: Because H-piles minimally disturb the surrounding area, they are well suited for areas where moving a lot of ground would be problematic due to space or environmental concerns. 
  • Easy to extract 

STEVENS Sheet Pile Services

 

What are the benefits of Steel Sheet Piles?

  • Easier to handle: due to being lightweight sheet steel piles are easier to handle and maneuver
  • Customizable: the length and design of the sheet pile are easily adaptable 
  • Low Maintenance: Upkeep and maintenance are low, whether they are above or below water. 
  • Durable: Sheet steel pile joints are durable, and can withstand the high pressure needed to drive them into place

 

How Are Sheet and H-Piles Installed?

Vibrating hammers, or pile drivers, are used for driving sheet pile. However, if the soil is too compacted or dense, an impact hammer will be used for driving the piles to ensure that they reach the correct depth. 

Before the installation process begins, the piles should be inspected thoroughly for structural integrity and that they are devoid of any cracking or imperfections

The driving process needs to be monitored closely and should stop if the piles stop penetrating the soil. The object preventing the pile from penetrating the ground should be removed, and the driving process resumed.  

 

DEEP FOUNDATION APPLICATIONS

Most topsoils do not have the mechanical properties necessary to support large building construction.

Our designed H-piles are dimensionally square structural beams pressed into the ground for deep support applications.

Whether driven by schedule, safety, accessibility, or efficiency, STEVENS, working with our engineers or an owner's engineer of record, can help identify soil type and analyze geotechnical reports to properly layout and drive these types of pile as needed.

 

Why Choose STEVENS Sheet And H-Pile For Your Project?

For over 75 years, STEVENS has provided the support and structure through our sheet and H-pile services that companies have come to rely on.  

We perform piling on both small and large projects. One of the largest projects safely drove over 290,400 linear feet or over 55 miles of 12x55 of H-pile. Approximately 5,280 sticks of H-piling were spliced at 2,640 individual locations with an average pile length of 110 feet.  One of the largest projects ever completed on the east coast was finished in under five months.  

Whether you need sheet piling for a simple earth barrier or shoring, to miles of H-piling, for structural foundation support, STEVENS can safely, and quickly get your job completed.

Williams Union Sheet & H-Pile Boiler Project
Williams Union Sheet & H-Pile Boiler Project
WILLIAMS UNION BOILER

Location: Dresden, Ohio

STEVENS Engineers & Constructors received the contract to install the H-Piling for the foundation support for the newly designed Dresden Energy Facility from Williams Service Group. The Dresden Energy Facility, a combined cycle power plant, is owned and operated by Dominion Energy.

This site was previously rough graded when STEVENS began to work at the facility. Included in the scope of the contract was the final excavation required for each of the major foundation footprints.

Facts: Excavation – 19,000 cy
H- Pile installation – 1712 pile; 85,300 LF total; 200 splices

Description:

STEVENS performed the excavation work during late fall and through the winter under severe weather conditions. This enabled work to begin in early spring on the foundations, followed by the summer erection of the equipment. STEVENS met the proposed 7-week schedule through the utilization of 3 pile driving rigs and an aggressive 6-day work week schedule.

STEVENS had an impressive performance and safety record on the piling installation and was subsequently awarded the foundation contract for the Dresden Energy Facility foundations. STEVENS always strives for quality workmanship and a safety-first environment, making them a leader in the industry.

BETHLEHEM STEEL

Location: Sparrows Point, Maryland

STEVENS has performed piling on both large and small projects. These projects, ranging from sheet piling, used for a simple earth barrier or shoring, to miles of H-piling, used for structural foundation support, have all been successfully executed by STEVENS.

STEVENS was subcontracted by Fluor to execute the largest H-pile project, Cold Mill at Sparrows Point in Baltimore, Maryland. This project safely drove over 290,400 linear feet or 55 miles of 12 x 55 H-pile, using four pile driving rigs and four splicing crews. Approximately 5,280 sticks of H-piling were spliced at 2,640 individual locations with an average pile length of 110 feet. STEVENS was able to accomplish the piling in less than five months. At that time, this was the largest piling project on the east coast.

STEVENS completed other challenging projects at ATI’s Electric Arc and Reheat Furnaces. While driving sheet piling at ATI’s Electric Arc Furnace, STEVENS was dealing with limited head room. Poor soils were a concern while placing sheet piling at the Reheat Furnace. Public roadways and local authorities were additional obstacles that were present. Driving forty-foot sheet piles with only sixty feet of headroom and limited turning radius against the public right-of-way were obstacles that STEVENS’ project team was able to overcome by drawing from their years of experience to safely and efficiently complete the project.

ATI BRACKENRIDGE

Location: Sparrows Point, Maryland

STEVENS Engineers & Constructors were under two large contracts to install civil foundations at the ATI Brackenridge location when they were granted a third contract to conduct much of the site excavation. This site was particularly tight due to a new HSM that was being built in an existing facility surrounded by the town of Brackenridge.

STEVENS excavated down approximately three feet below the sidewalk, then drove 700 feet of SKM – 22 sheet piles along the road and 400 feet along the existing buildings. This was completed using two 80-ton with 100 feet boom conventional rigs. As the piling was going on, we moved a total of 70,000 cy of dirt, installed 30,000 square feet of sheet pile, put in the storm water pipe and demoed 10,000 cy of concrete all within five weeks. Working first shift only, along with the piling rigs, we had two 50-ton excavators, one 38-ton excavator with a hydraulic crusher, a 50-ton excavator with hydraulic hammer, a 38-ton excavator, a rubber tire hole, two D-6 dozers, two 30-ton art dump trucks, one road sweeper and 15-18 dump trucks on site.

This job was extremely tight and congested. STEVENS’ ability to self-perform at this type of work, under these conditions, especially considering the sheet pile, promotes the full benefits of safety and efficiency that we constantly realize within our projects.
