Op­er­a­tion is a tow­er­ing achieve­ment

7 Days in Dubai - - SPECIAL REPORT -

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.
