Cullinan Park Boardwalk – Sugar Land Texas

December 26, 2018

Solid Foundation in Adverse Conditions

Dudley Engineering provided structural engineering for the Cullinan Park Boardwalk in the city of Sugarland, Texas. Due to the boardwalk traversing through portions of the park that are regularly inundated with flood waters, the boardwalk was supported by helical screw piles which when driven to the proper depth provide the necessary lateral and gravity support for the boardwalk.

Compared to traditional deep foundations such as concrete drilled piers, screw piles can be installed without excessive cost increases in adverse conditions.
