Cantsink was engaged by Integrated Construction and Nobility to provide permanent support with its patented helical piers below the pond’s bottom to make the new dock stable for decades in the future. Access to the work site in a heavily wooded area was difficult and the installation required inserting piers into the pond bed underwater.
Job materials were transported a quarter of a mile to the job site on a skid steer from the unloading location on a pedestrian walkway, carefully maneuvering around trees through the forested expanse.
Once on-site, the crew used an extra-long boom to reach out into the water from the shoreline to insert the steel helical piers. Using a john boat in the water, other crew members helped ensure the precise placement of each helical pier. Extra care was required to ensure the safety of the workers in the challenging conditions.
