Operation is a towering achievement
An extensive geotechnical investigation campaign has been carried out for The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour. Fugro was contracted by Emaar Properties to conduct the investigation. It said in a statement that because of the height and design of the structure, ground engineering is critical in the schedule and foundation design. “We deployed resources and expertise to meet a demanding design programme and to ensure the results of the site investigation were of the highest quality,” said Peter Brooke, Fugro’s Business Delivery Manager. The scope of works included more than 4,800m of triple tube coring to depths of up to 200m. The firm said the programme was one of the most comprehensive geotechnical investigations undertaken in the region.
