A. H. Beck Foundation Company worked with Starcon International to install a total of 143 – 14” x 30’ augercast piles for a variety of pipe racks needed for the ConocoPhillips – Gulf Coast Fractionators plant expansion. These piles were all installed in an operational plant under a variety of work conditions. Some areas had overhead racks or structures and required the use of low overhead specialty equipment which required A. H. Beck to install the piles in as little as 15 feet of overhead clearance. Most all of the piles had some limitations to access which necessitated some innovative approaches in the construction process. Even in the low overhead, restricted work conditions, A. H. Beck was able to produce multiple piles per day using two types of drill rigs.
