"Composite piles are filled with concrete are a viable alternative to traditional piles due to the increase in longevity and life."
Hurricane Sandy devastated the east coast, in October of 2012. Liberty Island was one of the locations directly hit, causing extreme damage to the Statue of Liberty visitor and service docks. During the first phase of the recovery project, more than 200 timber piles needed to be replaced for the service dock, in time for the July 4th reopening of the island and statue. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) chose SUPERPILE to serve as bearing piles for the renovated service dock. Creative Pultrusions, Inc. quickly produced the piles needed. Each pile was 48’ long, 12" wide and filled with concrete.
