We started drilling today. Full production mode.
Back over the wall to drill deeper.
After the holes were drilled to a depth of 15 feet, the pumper truck arrived to get set up for the first pour.
Our soil engineer was present to inspected the maximum depth of each hole prior to placement of the rebar cage. The structural engineer had to verify that the rebar cage was positioned correctly in the hole prior to pouring of concrete.
The operations got a bit messy once the drill hit water and we had to use the casing with the tremie. You can see the first completed holes below.
The pump operator used a wireless console to control the pumping. This way, the operator could be positioned anywhere on the job site in order to manage the pumping operations.
Ready for tomorrow’s drilling.
You can see the 30 ft tremie in the foreground with the two 20 ft casings and the rebar cages in the background.
Oh, I did manage to pick up the Dodge RAM 1500 in Antioch today.
