The UCH Building Block ‘A’ consists of two 16-storey towers, each with 3 levels of basements and the building will be founded on bored piles. The detailed design of the proposed excavation and lateral support (ELS) works for the basements and pile cap construction with a maximum depth of 21.5m.
In the original scheme, the conventional approach of struts extending across the whole site was considered. However, the assessments indicated that the movements of the temporary wall and adjacent ground (even with pre-loading struts) would be up to 49 mm and would be unacceptable. In order to reduce the movements, temporary circular cofferdams formed by pipe piles would be constructed to support the struts. The analyses showed that the movements would be significantly reduced to 22mm by adopting this scheme. Finally, the estimates indicate that the cost of this scheme is comparable to that of the conventional scheme.
With the technical visit, visitors would learn the technique and construction method of excavation and lateral support (ELS) for basement and pile cap works.
