Hayward Baker worked on a sheet pile & helical pile installation in restricted access conditions in a busy petrochemical facility. The client added a new sump area and needed to support the new concrete sump floor. Along with the new addition, the client also required deep foundation support of new pipe bridges and supports and retrofitting existing supports (concrete bell piers) with new helical piles in the main corridor of the facility. The subsurface soils generally consisted of lean-to fat clays in loose to medium soils 20 to 30 ft deep.

14 remarkable structures that addressed geotechnical challenges along with the solutions provided by Keller and fellow companies are presented in their 2019 virtual calendar.

Hayaward Baker, Inc. (HBI) worked on the construction of the Seaside Way Pedestrian Bridge in Long Beach, California. The bridge connects the Long Beach Convention Center and Long Beach Performing Arts Center. This project received ENR's 'Best of the Best 2018' award in the Landscape/Urban Development category.

Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center sits on a 30-acre campus. The owner undertook a $130 million, multi-phase expansion project to increase capacity, including the addition of a new five-story patient tower. Hayward Baker was able to save two weeks on the unexpectedly fast-track deep foundation schedule by mobilizing a second drill rig to install drilled shafts.
