Client: MRS. LAMIA AZZI
AZZI BUILDING had a major problem since failure had occurred in the shoring system that was installed by another contractor prior to IGM’s arrival. The adjacent building was seriously damaged and could not tolerate any extra movements. IGM designed and executed the new shoring system to retain a 7m deep excavation next to the building in distress. The Soil is Sandy with active properties and zero cohesion (post failure). The Surrounding is a high risk including 2 old buildings medium weight with 1 main traffic road and 1 access road. I.G.M. proposed a 15cm shotcrete wall with vertical micropiles and 2 rows of horizontal active anchors. The distance between anchors is 2.5m and the total length of the anchor is 13m.
