AFTCell Mele in Hawaii
AFT is proud to be a part of the latest phase of the Honolulu Rail Transit project working with the JV of Shimick Traylor Granite. This is the third segment of the project known as the Airport Guideway and Stations Design Build Contract. It includes a 5.15-mile segment of elevated guideway and four stations all supported on Drilled Shaft foundations. AFT-Cell’s were used extensively on the project but one in particular stands out. The project engineering team needed to test the base resistance of a 10 foot diameter drilled shaft with its tip at 226 feet underground. AFT answered their questions with 28,000 kips of AFT-Cell firepower.
