November 4, 2007

btw. 93rd and 94th streets
Looking through a piece of drilling pipe - approx 2 feet in diameter and 20 feet long.

the same piece of pipe - a wider angle.

This piece of equipment, a German made Bauer BG 22H rotary drilling rig mounted on a Caterpiller platform, arrived at the job site on Monday morning October 29th. The drilling portion of the machine stands about 70 feet tall.

This machine will be used to drill holes, about 2 feet in diameter, for the piles (the steel beams on the left in the image.) My guess is that these piles will support the outside walls of the launch box.

A closer view of rotary drilling rig.

A close-up view of the working end of the rotary drill.

And these are the piles that are being placed in the holes that are being drilled.

This store closed and relocated back in August. Most likely it will be some time before this location is rented again.

A jack hammer, a pair of boots and and a traffic cone.

A nice selection of tools at the job site.
