Groundwater was encountered at approximately 5 ft below grade.
The Impact® System was recommended by the geotechnical engineer as an alternate to a typical driven pile foundation system. A total of 430 twenty-inch diameter Impact elements were installed to depths of 16 ft below the foundation base.
