GROUND FOUNDATION AT NAGA ATENEO UNIVERSITY, PHILIPPINES

2018-04-05

The Ateneo de Naga University was established in 1940 by the Jesuits and its well known as one of the best private un iversities in Philippines. It is located in Naga city, which is located in Camarines Sur district. University has been expanding during its long history and thelatest decision by University’s Authorities is to build a new senior high school building close to existing building.

Naga based contractor ASP Membran Construction was chosen for the foundation work project due to their long experience in the field. Due to unstable soil conditions the basement had to be reinforced by tubular piles in the diameter of 200mm and lengths of 8 to 10 meters. ASP was using the MOVAX ML-30 side grip vibrator because of its fast and safe pile handling capabilities as well as the good penetration process whilst driving down the tubes. The bearing load process was completed with final hits by a small rock hammer.

The MOVAX ML-30 was sold to ASP Membran Construction by Philippine MOVAX dealer Fondaquip.
