Franki foundations installed 150 driven tube piles for the Burundi Brewers and lemonade makers (Bralima) – a subsidiary of the Heineken International Group – so that they could build new silos.
Driven tube piles
Old pipes were reused as lost casings and the remaining pieces of tubes were turned into plugs for the tube piles.
Franki Foundations favored local workers to work on this project. We sent a team leader and one workman from the headquarters to train five local workmen.
Thanks to the choice for driven cast-in-place piles, the amount of raw materials used, waste and transport could be reduced:
