Multiple Pile Systems for New Disney World Skyliner System
Morris-Shea has completed construction of multiple deep foundation pile systems for the new Skyliner Transportation System at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. The foundation contractor worked closely with the project’s general contractor, PCL Construction Services (PCL), to install more than 900 piles throughout the cable gondola system comprising six stations and numerous support towers. The new Walt Disney World ride will connect Disney’s Riviera, Caribbean, Boardwalk and Animation resorts with the International Gateway at Epcot Center and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Theme Park.
The foundation contractor recommended a design-build option in lieu of the originally specified pipe piles and augercast pile systems that reduced construction expense and improved operational logistics.
