The recent test pile drives proceeded better than expected. Thanks to the soft soil we expect the installation of the piles to take only four days vice two-weeks as originally planned.
Twenty-eight (28) piles will be installed next week. Currently, the contractor is scheduled to begin pile driving on Tuesday, April 19 and should be complete by Thursday April 21. Each pile will take less than an hour to set, with only 15 minutes for that hour dedicated to pounding.
Afterwards, the contractor will install "grade beams" which will serve as footing for concrete wall blocks. We expect walls to begin going up in mid-May with block work lasting about four weeks.
