Owner: ALDI Grocery Stores

Partner: Fortunato Construction

Location: Westfield, Massachusetts

Project Description: HB Fleming installed 316 helical piles to support uplift loading at a new ALDI grocery store.

Challenge: A layer of dense fill at the surface made installation to the required depth difficult.

Solution:

To get beyond the dense fill, the team pre-drilled the helical pile positions using a continuous flight auger.
