Stiver Engineering was retained by the client to provide structural design through a foundation design for a 1,500-ton cable carousel that was located adjacent to the Houston, Texas Ship Channel. We provided a foundation design that consisted of 52-24 inch diameter steel piles, which were filled with concrete in order to provide enough section to prevent pile failure in the soft soil.
This project specified the expansion of the County Road 31 bridge over Oyster Creek in north Brazoria County, Texas. Our primary goal was to provide the project’s contractor with temporary construction bridge designs, which consisted of driven steel piles, w-sections, and hardwood timber.
