Ovation Update St Petersburg Florida

Caissons continue to be driven down for the foundation of Ovation, the premier luxury highrise condominium on Beach Drive in downtown St. Petersburg. Actually the caissons are vibrated down into the ground rather than being driven – a real benefit for the ears of nearby residents and businesses. These caissons are from 40 ft high to 100 ft high, and have diameters ranging from 2 feet to 4 feet – so they are huge when standing up on the ground! Once they are secured in the ground, concrete is poured down, and after that has set, the casing is pulled up, again through vibration.  There will be about 195 of these foundation supports on that block. It’s interesting to watch the progress of this building – and easy to do, since it’s at the corner of Beach Drive and 2nd Avenue N. – in between BayWalk and The Pier.
