Propriety would require that I not comment on the email below but what fun would there be in that?  Please note that once I have the dates, I will share.  A bottle of chilled Chardonnay will be made available for those who wish to join me for the joy ride.  Poor Mr. Hole, he won’t soon live this down!

Please see the email below and let me know if you have any vibration-sensitive equipment in your area. Please provide your response by late tomorrow. I will provide definitive dates for this work in the next few days.

I greatly appreciate your help.

Wanted to give you a heads up on some work that we have upcoming that is going to require the use of a vibratory hammer.  With our recent excavation efforts, we have unearthed vertical H-pile shoring members that were put in as part of the garage project.  These piles are in the way of the new footings on column line 8 and need to be removed. We’ve tried to get them out with an excavator on site, but have been unsuccessful, and now we must try the hammer.  We expect it to go pretty quickly with the hammer, and vibrations should be minimal as it is only H-pile and we are pulling out rather than putting in.  My only concern is whether there is any vibration-sensitive equipment In 1222 that may require special precaution.  For what it’s worth, we installed the piles with a vibratory hammer back in winter ’07 and did not experience any issues with the neighbors then.  Let me know your thoughts.  We are currently targeting this work for either next Wednesday 6/8 or Friday 6/10.
