When Waterfront Marine was awarded the contract to drive all of the piling for the new 4 story parking grage in downtown Norfolk, they knew they had their work cut out for them. They had to drive aprox. 580 12″x 12″ x 85′ piles with a very demanding schedule. Waterfront, being one of the leaders in piledriving in the Tidewater area, already owns many APE diesel hammers. They started out with 2 each APE D19-42 hammers and replaced one with a APE D30-42 as well as an APE Model 20 drill to pre-drill. Operations Manager Bill Hall said, “making that move doubled our production”. APE is the only way to go ! All is going full speed ahead. We wish them a safe and productive project. We also want to thank Mr. Scott Wall of Atlantic Coast Engineering of Va. Beach for doing all the PDA WEAP & WAVE information. He’s shown in one of the pictures with his mobile PDA. Call them for all your engineering needs.
