GEMTEC undertook dynamic pile testing for a new bridge structure being constructed on the MacKenzie Highway No. 1, over the Kakisa River, in the Northwest Territories.

Project highlights include:

  • Dynamic pile testing using a Pile Driving Analyzer (PDA)
  • Aggressive construction schedule
  • Demonstrated that friction piles, driven to 10 m below foundation grade, achieved the required geotechnical resistance in axial compression
