PROJECT DETAILS

Location

Punjab, India.

DESIGN CHALLENGES

Site had extremely loose alluvial soil, with SPTs of 3-7. The site was red-flagged and additional investigations were undertaken to verify the low strength values. The client was educated about the poor soil condition and the increased costs of foundation for the project. 2 options - either of 3m deep RCC bored piles, or 3.5m deep rammed steel piles were proposed. The rammed piles were tested at site and the option was chosen for it's speed.

Type of Foundations
