What We Do

Piledrivers & Divers

Pile Drivers lay out, cut, set, splice, drive or extract, wood, metal or concrete piling including sheet piling, I-beams, H-beams and pipe pile. Pile Drivers perform all the welding related to piling, pile caps and supported structures. Pile Drivers build and install falsework and all the concrete forms related to structures and components. They place concrete, grouts and epoxies, bore, bolt, weld and anchor all structures and components.

Pile Driver work includes the care, maintenance and setup of hammers, leads, rigs, motors, pumps and other equipment necessary to do the work of a piledriver.

Commercial divers can be found working in the offshore oil and gas industry, doing underwater bridge inspections, assisting in the construction of bridges and docks, welding anodes on marine structures and performing emergency vessel repairs and salvage..
