Labor is cheaper than equipment - how soft is that ground

Only a month after more than 1,100 Bangladeshi garment workers lost their lives in the collapse of a badly-built and poorly maintained eight story building, the new building code has thankfully gone into force, and its rigid practices are already being applied by highly-skilled and properly-trained construction teams laboring on job-sites all across the sub-continent.

Especially for those of you with some construction work in your background I give you this New South-Asian construction process. The foreman is the guy on the tambourine................

I'm importing 20 of my own to drive my piles at my shore house later this summer. I figure on saving about 5K. So what my house will crumble in a few months.

My buddy who lives in Tailand 8 months out of the year sent that to me last week. Sad but pretty spot on.

nothing new about that- thats part of how we install dock walkway pilings in the coastal marshes.

post hole dig a hole, stand the pile, a couple of guys hang on the pile to pull it down,

install the opposing pile in the same way,( 2 piles every 10' or 12' )

nail on scaffolding boards, get up on the scaffolding and jump in unison to drive the pile down,
remove and reset boards and repeat until jumping no longer works,

put on 100 lb hand operated pile driving hammer and hand drive until refusal.

we build up to 1000' long walkways like this without putting machinery into the fragile marshes . and we can install pilings as long as 20' with this method.

Yeah, but that's the new "green" way of doing things; so you can feel good about it.

Old code stated the soil had to be harder than 5 average construction workers per floor, new code is 8 guys per floor.
