Ram Jack west commercial case study

Tacoma City Hall

Scope of work

  • The original design for the project was to use helical piles.
  • We conducted a helical test program at 3 locations, and due to the soil's stiffness, it confirmed our doubts about using helical piles. The piles were not reaching the minimum torque and failed to reach adequate depths.
  • Subsequently, we conducted a micro pile program, which performed very well.
  • Ram Jack worked with the geotechincal engineer and the design team to value engineer a micro pile solution.
