The Integral Construction Advantage
PORTABLE DRILLING RIG
ALLOWS INSTALLATION OF SOLDIER PILES WALL WHERE EQUIPMENT ACCESS IS LIMITED BECA– USE OF SMALL SIDE YARDS, LANDSCAPE WHICH WOULD BE DAMAGED, OR STEEP SLOPES THAT ARE NOT ACCESSABLE WITH TRACK MOUNTED OR CRANE MOUNTED DRILLING EQUIPMENT
This Drilling Rig was developed by Integral Construction in 1986 while building a large residence on Perkins Lane which runs along the bluff above Puget Sound on Magnolia Hill in Seattle. We had built the Carriage house at the top of the slope with a Crane mounted drilling Rig and had barged in equipment to allow building of a seawall and the building of the residence down on the water. We installed a cable tram for the access from the top of the slope to the house. However, to keep the steep slope stable, we needed retaining walls at several locations down on the slope which were not accessible from above or below. We took a couple of months working with a structural engineer to design this new portable drilling rig which has been improved during its continued use over the years since that project. It has allowed us to build many Soldier Pile Retaining Walls on site where other equipment simple cannot go and has also allowed us to work during Wet Weather Moratoriums because of its low impact.
DIFFICULT ACCESS SPECIALISTS:
Over our many years in this business we have developed specialized portable equipment to allow us to Underpin foundations, install Tieback Anchors, and even construct New Retaining walls in areas inaccessible by conventional equipment. We have developed a Portable Drilling Rig which can be hand carried into a difficult site. After being set up on its track, it can Drill and set steel beams for new retaining walls even on steep hillsides. We also have portable Anchor equipment to install both Tiebacks and Underpinning Anchors on hillsides or inside buildings where standard equipment cannot go.
Integral Construction is continuously involved in creating innovated engineer designed solutions for a diverse range of structures and construction projects. We have developed a special design for the in-wall termination of Tieback Anchors which allows stabilization of concrete walls without protruding connections.
So when someone asks what makes Integral Construction, Inc. one of the Seattle area’s finest foundation contractors? We say it is a unique combination of experience, design, quality and of course, an extraordinary commitment to our present and future customers.
