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