Malcolm completed the installation of a pile load test program for the Block G project in Downtown Miami. Block G is part of the Miami World-center development which encompasses approximately 30 acres, making it one of the largest private master plan projects in the United States. Block G consisting of Two 40+ story towers, will bring about 900 apartment units to the downtown Miami area.
Malcolm’s scope entailed the installation of over 600 Augercast Piles, 18 and 30 inches in diameter, and depths of up to 120 feet. The test program consisted of three O-cell test piles (two arranged in a two pile tangent group configuration) along with one pile tested in compression, tension and laterally loaded as well. The O-cell piles were tested to a maximum load of 4,200 kips.
