Project Details

Client: Clark Construction Group, LLC
Location: Sioux Falls, SD
Services: Deep Foundations


Bolander traveled to Sioux Falls, SD to drive the foundation piles for a new hockey arena at Augustana University. Augustana is launching a new program and will compete at the NCAA Division I level. Due to the poor soils at the project site, the design team elected to use driven pipe pile to support the new structure.

Bolander worked for Clark Construction for the first time in recent memory.  Clark works nationwide and are headquartered in Bethesda, MD.  Fiegen Construction, based in Sioux Falls, is also a project partner for the arena and MBJ provided the structural engineering.

Bolander drove 491 pipe piles with an average depth of 45’ for a total of 22,300 LF. The crew worked so quickly that we added a second pipe supplier and ultimately received materials from both Texas and Kentucky. Piles were driven with a D19-42 suspended from our Manitowoc 11000.
