Hi Ed.
Filling the pier with something maybe just to minimize the chance of dropping anything down it ie top plate nuts/washers. I'll probably will fill with expanding foam to facilitate this...
My steel pier will prob be around 1200mm long. ish……
From what I've heard, filling with sand, concrete etc. is done to reduce vibration/act as a dampener... But I'm no engineer
