Foundation Piling for Rum Cellars
St. Lucia Distillers.

CMSCS is in the process of installing the foundation piling for St. Lucia Distillers new rum cellars.  The cellars are being built to house the thousands of barrels full of the precious liquid, as it is carefully aged.

The buildings have to be earthquake and hurricane proof so that the ageing process is not disturbed and although the buildings are single storey, the barrels of rum stacked on shelves floor to ceiling make them incredibly heavy and each building requires 168 driven DIP piles at between 50 and 20m in length, will be required for this construction which includes tensile pile testing prior to the beginning of building construction.  

Once completed the piles are dynamically tested to verify their axial capacity in compression and then full scale load testing is carried out, to verify their capacity in tension and ensure that the design criteria are met.

The decision to utilise DIP Plugin&Drive® foundation piling is a cost effective, quickly installed and highly reliable solution, when building completion time impacts on company expansion.
