Slurry cast v Auger cast Piles

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I have a contactor who wants to use slurry cast rather than auger cast piles as were specified on the drawings. Anyone know any reason I should not allow this? It seems like a reasonable request to me (obviously we will reconsider the design of the piles in light of the change in pier type [depth, diameter, reinforcing, etc]).
