Piledriving has been performed throughout the company's history including the Atlantic City casino boom of the 1980's and the expansions in the 2000's. Typical projects include pipe pile, sheet pile, timber pile and even composite and vinyl sheet pile. Over the years the company has diversified into other scopes of work including utility work, sitework, road reconstructions, and recently directional drilling.
The veteran contracting firm has focused its work in the South New Jersey area and has specialized in installation methods in the sands of the barrier islands. Like many in the industry, it has experimented with new technologies, but Arthur R. Henry, Inc. always comes back to the tried-and-true jet and drive or dry driving using crane mounted air hammer system.
Grant Achey, P.E., a project manager at Arthur R. Henry, Inc. explains that the company has adjusted some equipment capabilities; "We have modified our excavator mounted pile installation rigs over the years to meet the need for smaller timber pile jobs typically installed along the shoreline for boardwalk or other smaller building supports." He adds that he and his colleagues look forward to continuing to complete quality projects in the area and educating owners and engineers on the benefits of the driven pile!
