Along the James River, workers needed a 24' concrete box that encases 2x72" raw water intakes. This was 14' deep to the top of the concrete. There were 12+ stainless steel air pipes that blow debris off of the raw water intake screens, and these pipes needed to be replace and rerouted. The excavation was 5' to 7' from the edge of the James River and 10' deeper than the water level.
Our competitors wanted to use beam and plate, but that solution failed. A total of three companies tried to complete this project and failed. TrenchTech came to the rescue in a very tight spot with slide rail, which allowed the project to be completed.
