The CLINIQUE DU LEVANT project is a new specialized hospital to be built. The building has eight full basements and a narrower ninth one. The excavation will then extend 27m below grade. The surrounding is empty plots with low risk and light traffic. The soil is a marley limestone, slightly fractured. The solution proposed by IGM consists of piles diameter 50cm installed every 2m behind the excavation limit. They are only temporary structures that will be horizontally supported by 3 rows of anchors. Each row of anchors is tensioned against a steel frame tying 2 piles. The solution was optimized by implementing a zig zag anchoring formation.
