Morris-Shea CFA Piles Installation at Novant Medical Center in Ballantyne, NC

July 7, 2021: Morris-Shea CFA Piles Installation at Novant Medical Center in Ballantyne, NC

Morris-Shea, a leading deep foundation contractor, installed 190 Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) piles as deep foundation construction for a new Novant Health hospital and 56,000-square-foot medical office building in Ballantyne, NC. The Morris-Shea team reviewed and redesigned the original conventional augercast spec-ifications for the medical center deep foundation construction. 24-inch and 36-inch diameter continuous flight auger piles (CFA) were specified as a Value Engineered Alternate to improve load capacity and reduce production scheduling. The CFA piles were drilled by a Fundex F3500 drill rig to depths between 56-feet and 93-feet from elevations at the excavated ground floor and surface floor levels. Morris-Shea utilized seven different CFA pile types to accommodate varied load capacities throughout the project site.
