Simplifying Excavation and Building Construction
FNA typically relies on the top-down construction method for tall buildings with deep basements and structures below the ground floor, like parking garages, subway stations, and underpasses. Excavation projects where tieback or anchor installation is not practical or when sites must minimize soil movement are additional applications of top-down construction.
Along with significant time and money savings, the top-down construction method provides other advantages, including:
- A more efficient piling process
- Increased safety for the general public
- Increased protections from inclement weather
- Reduced noise and dust during basement excavation
