Utility Shoring Using Micropiles
Several underground storage tanks were marked for removal at the Veterans Hospital in downtown Reno. Backfilled in pea gravel, these tanks were directly adjacent a concrete raceway containing electrical and communication lines that were essential to the hospital operations. The entire raceway itself was supported using Micropiles with special brackets designed by VersaGrade. As the tanks were removed, the pea gravel backfill unraveled from under the raceway as expected, but the raceway remained in place without issue.
