Pile Design
Enquiry
In the "Report for Exception to the CHBDC", the Preliminary General Arrangement Drawing clearly shows a pier arrangement of a pile cap (with no footing) which is contrary to the pile design shown on the "Structural Design Report" Appendix D Drawings (which shows a pier design that includes a footing). Please clarify which design is to be used.

Response
The “exception” report was prepared early in the design stage to garner approval for a reduced clearance between the HWL and the underside of the bridge. The bridge drawing at that time was preliminary. The pier foundation configuration was changed in the later stages to address some relatively low pile capacities. It is the DB contractor’s responsibility to interpret the site conditions and constraints, and to finalize the structure configuration and design.
