The Project consists of a residential building constructed within a confined area surrounded by adjacent structures and roads. The excavation of this building required the installation of an efficient shoring system with a limited budget. The soil is a clayey sand 5 to 6 meter deep, underlain by calcareous shale. The excavation needed for the new building was about 8m. Int’l IGM proposed and constructed an anchor/pile system on the building & road sides to retain the excavated sides and minimize any movement of the adjacent structure or infrastructures. The piles were 30cm in diameter with 1m c/c spacing and one or two of active anchors tensioned against a concrete waler beam.
