Extremely confined aggregate pier site with Wurster Engineering shoring on 3 sides.

location Clemson, SC

Prior to aggregate pier installation, Wurster Engineering & Construction installed helical piers to underpin an adjacent structure. Once the foundations were stabilized, WEC had to install a soil nail wall with nails designed around the now implemented helical piers. Additionally, WEC assisted in a tieback and sheet pile installation.
