Brayman’s scope of work required the installation of 318-each caissons comprising 239-each, 60-inch diameter; 58-each, 54-inch diameter; 18-each, 48-inch diameter; and 3-each, 42-inch diameter shafts. Average shaft length was 40-foot, with 10-foot rock sockets drilled in 15000-psi to 25000-psi granite. Steel casing bridges the poor soils above this hard rock. Multiple drill rigs using specialized tooling were utilized to accelerate the project schedule. The majority of work was performed from a temporary bridge 15-feet above an environmentally protected wetland area.
