Special foundations used for Wisconsin River island construction

We are using micropile technology to replace an aging transmission structure on an island in the Wisconsin River in Stevens Point, Wis.

A micropile is a high-performance drilled and grouted foundation that can be installed in environmentally sensitive locations using lightweight specialty equipment. In this case, the micropile will eliminate the need for bringing concrete trucks on to the island.

Seawalls have been installed along the shore in Bukolt Park in Stevens Point to accommodate a barge that will be used to ferry crews and equipment to the island when the work is performed this winter.
