PROJECTS 
Foundation Piling for Rum Cellars
St. Lucia Distillers.

CMSCS has completed the installation of foundation piling for St. Lucia Distillers new rum cellars.  The cellars are to house the thousands of barrels full of the precious liquid, as it is carefully aged.

The buildings required earthquake and hurricane proofing, so that the ageing process is not disturbed.  Although the buildings are single storey, the barrels of rum are stacked on shelves, floor to ceiling, make them incredibly heavy. Each building required 168 driven DIP piles, at between 50 and 20m in length, which included tensile pile testing, prior to the beginning of building construction.  

When installed, 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, to 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.
