Foundations in Los Angeles for Huge Staples-Adjacent Towers

1200 Fig is a massive mixed-use project retail/residential. Designed by Harley Ellis Devereaux, the project is a collaboration between developers Jamison Services and Hankey Group.

The new mixed-use project will add 648 luxury residential condominiums in twin 36-story towers, which includes an 8-story parking podium wrapped in led billboard screens that the towers will be resting on.

The ground floor will have about 50,000 square feet of retail space that will be wonderfully complementary to Fig Central’s planned 200,000 square feet of retail space directly across the street.

Calex Engineering Co.’s scope on the project is to install the temporary shoring system (drill and install soldier piles, install lagging, install tiebacks, install rakers, etc.) and excavate the basement.

Calex is using two Soilmec drilling rig, model SR-40 and R-312. Works includes no. 196 soldier piles (7,540 LF of drilling, 24'' & 30'' shaft diameters), 46,000 square feet of shoring, no. 265 tiebacks and no. 32 rakers.
