Pile Cut Off

September , 2011

We were contracted to survey, locate, and burn off an assortment of 20 inch diameter steel pilings, during the demolition phase of a pier at an old US Navy Base at Hunters Point in the San Francsico Bay; a ‘superfund’ site clean up. A four-man crew was dispatched and spent 2 long days searching in zero visibilty conditions, marking targets with buoys, and eventually cutting off and retrieving the piles, which ranged from 10′ to 38′ feet long.
