Commercial Sheet Piles in NJ and the Mid-Atlantic

During commercial deep foundation construction projects, contractors often dig well below the surface to provide repairs, bolster structural support, and make way for property expansion. However, the walls made when digging, or the Earthern interior edges of any dug construction hole, are subject to extreme conditions that may result in collapse.

The possibility of environmental collapse during construction makes commercial sheet piles a must-have solution for any deep foundation project. This service article digs deep into what commercial sheet piles are, how they help keep construction sites safe, our installation process, sheet pile application cases, and how you can start installing them today.

What is Commercial Sheet Piling?

Commercial sheet piling is essential in construction, especially for deep foundation projects. It involves driving structural steel, vinyl, or wood sections into the ground to support soil or water retention. This technique has evolved significantly, reflecting advancements in materials and construction needs.

Historical Evolution of Sheet Piling in NJ

Initially utilizing wood, the sheet piling industry moved to steel for its superior strength and durability and later to vinyl for its corrosion resistance and environmental benefits. This evolution highlights the industry's pursuit of more efficient, durable, and sustainable construction methods.

Commercial Sheet Pile Material Options

Here, we've provided some basic knowledge for clients to understand better which commercial sheet pile solution works best for their construction project:

  • Steel: Offers high strength and flexibility, suitable for most projects but requires corrosion mitigation.
  • Vinyl: Provides corrosion resistance and environmental benefits, ideal for marine environments with lower load requirements.
  • Wood: Suitable for temporary structures or projects where aesthetics are a priority, though less durable than steel or vinyl.

Temporary vs. Permanent Commercial Sheet Piling

Sheet piles may come in the form of many materials and have countless use applications. However, in most projects, piles are being installed temporarily or permanently. Below, we discuss the differences between temporary and permanent use applications for sheet piles:

Temporary Sheet Piling

Temporary sheet piling is used mainly during construction phases. It provides the necessary support for excavations and ensures site safety. Contractors remove these sheet piles once the permanent structure or foundation is in place. Typical applications include temporary excavation support and water diversion projects.

Permanent Sheet Piling

Permanent sheet piling remains part of the structure's foundation or as a permanent retaining solution. It's essential for long-term stability in construction, flood defense, and erosion control. Contractors often choose permanent pilings for their durability and critical role in the infrastructure's lifespan.

Applications of Commercial Sheet Piling in NJ

Let's go over use cases for commercial sheet piling for you to compare to your construction project:

Environmental Protection and Remediation

  • Containment Barriers: We use sheet piles to create barriers to contain contaminated land or water, preventing the spread of pollutants and facilitating environmental remediation efforts.
  • Water Treatment Facilities: They provide structural support and containment for the construction of water treatment and sewage treatment plants, ensuring environmental protection and compliance with regulatory standards.

Energy and Utility Infrastructure

  • Oil and Gas Facilities: Sheet piling is used to construct storage facilities, offering secure and leak-proof containment.
  • Renewable Energy Projects: This project supports the infrastructure needs of renewable energy projects, such as wind farms and hydroelectric plants, by stabilizing the ground for towers or creating water channels.

Leisure and Recreation

  • Marinas and Waterfront Developments: Sheet piling is essential for constructing marinas, docks, and waterfront walkways, enhancing recreational areas while protecting against water erosion.
  • Golf Courses and Parks: These are used in landscaping to create water features or stabilize slopes and banks, contributing to aesthetic and functional design elements.

Agricultural Applications

  • Irrigation Systems: Provides support and containment for irrigation channels, ensuring efficient water management for agricultural lands.
  • Flood Control Structures: These piles are essential in constructing dikes and floodgates for agricultural flood management, protecting crops and farmland from excessive water.

Mining and Resource Extraction

  • Pit Shoring: In mining operations, sheet piling stabilizes open pits and shafts, ensuring the safety of workers and equipment.
  • Water Control: Helps manage water in mining areas, preventing flooding and enabling safe extraction processes.

These additional application cases underscore the wide-ranging utility of commercial sheet piling across different sectors, highlighting its importance in ensuring structural integrity, environmental protection, and efficient resource use.

Safety Considerations for Sheet Piling Projects

Sheet piling is primarily used for environmental remediation, ensuring the safety of property occupants and construction workers.

The last thing a commercial proprietor or anyone would want is a wall of soil, sand, or other Earthern material collapsing on them, causing injury or death.

Therefore, we've provided primary safety considerations for contractors and project planners when installing sheet piles:

Comprehensive Planning

  • Conduct risk assessments to identify hazards.
  • Implement specific safety protocols, including fall protection and equipment safety.

Proper Training and Equipment

  • Provide thorough training on safety procedures and equipment use.
  • Regularly inspect and maintain all sheet piling equipment.

On-Site Safety Measures

  • Enforce continuous monitoring and strict supervision during operations.
  • Mandate the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) for all workers.

Environmental Considerations

  • Apply erosion and sediment control measures.
  • Implement noise and vibration mitigation strategies.

Regulatory Compliance

  • Comply with construction and occupational safety regulations.
  • Secure all necessary permits and approvals before starting work.

Adhering to these focused safety measures can significantly reduce risks and protect workers and the environment during sheet piling projects.
