Petrochemical Sump and Pipe Support by Hayward Baker https://www.thestructuralengineer.info/news-center/news/item/922-petrochemical-sump-and-pipe-support-by-hayward-baker https://www.thestructuralengineer.info/news-center/news/item/922-petrochemical-sump-and-pipe-support-by-hayward-baker Completed internally-braced sheet piles shown in the background while a rig installs helical piles.

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.
