for the indicator piles should reflect the specifications of the design.
e. Establish Criteria for and Complete Load Tests. In addition to the tests on the indicator piles, load
testing on production piles should be planned for during design and contracted for separately from the

f. Establish Pile Lengths from Results of All Tests. Pile lengths should be finalized only after the
indicator pile testing is complete and the analysis has been performed on the results.
