Bored piling works are now underway at the site of the 28-storey 1st tower of Avida Towers Aspira located along Ramon Chaves Street in Cagayan de Oro City.
Shown above is the official status update (as of October 2014) posted at its website HERE. Photos below taken last week showed the circular steel casings seen onsite and ready to be driven into the ground. These piles form the main structural system for the foundation.
Below is a closer shot. Note markings in the background which will serve as guide to the pile driving works.
It’s basically the same method used by Centrio Tower (shown below).
From the outside, you can see the cranes and other heavy equipment.
Once completed, Aspira Tower 1 will be the tallest building in the city surpassing the 23-storey Centrio Tower. If materialized, Tower 2 is even taller at 32 floors.
