CSCE Nov. Nooner – Selecting Pile Type to Suit Soil Conditions

November 22, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-6


Join us for the third Nooner of the 2018-2019 season! Mathew Schultz from Keller Foundations will be presenting on how Keller selected their pile types for two different projects based on the soil conditions unique to each one.

Our Nooners include the buffet lunch at the Park Town and free parking (just register at the front desk).

Lunch starts at 12, with presentation to follow at ~12:30 pm.

We greatly appreciate all ticket orders made three days in advance of the Nooner (including for those using corporate sponsor vouchers), so we can let the venue know how many people we expect. Please take advantage of our early bird pricing, which we offer up until 3 days before the event!

Presentation Summary:

This presentation will look at the pile selection for two projects, the GrainsConnect Maymont (2016) and GrainsConnect Reford (2017) Terminals. The presentation will describe why continuous flight augering (CFA) piles were chosen for GrainsConnect Maymont and why the pile design was changed to belled cast-in-place (CIP) piles for Reford. Construction difficulties and advantages of CFA vs CIP will be covered as well. Load tests were completed at each project to enhance pile design.
