EP Breaux Substation

Drilled Shafts

GROUP Deep Foundations was contracted by EP Breaux Electrical to install a new electrical substation in Oklahoma for GRDA.  The project consisted of over 1500 cubic yards of concrete for drilled piers what were terminated several feet into hard rock with a RQD value of over 90%.  GROUP utilized high torque drilling equipment and rock drilling techniques including core barrels and heavy rock augers.  When sandy ground conditions were encountered, GROUP used a virbo hammer and casing technique to penetrate the sand and seal off the shaft so that rock drilling could commence.
