Solutions for Bulkheads & Piers

Bulkheads and Piers are a vital part of the nation’s supply chain. Ground improvement techniques such as soil mixing and jet grouting can stabilize soft soils by introducing cementitious binder, for planned or remedial work. Vibro replacement stone columns can be constructed behind bulkheads to densify soils to reduce lateral pressures on the bulkhead. Voids behind bulkheads can be filled by jet grouting and cement grouting. Soil loss around pier support piles can be remedied with surgical jet grouting. Tieback anchors can be installed through sheet pile bulkheads to permanent lateral support. Hayward Baker has applied many of their full lineup of techniques to improve bulkheads and piers.
