At a large upcoming residential project in Chennai, an unusual buried Sewage Treatment Plant presented problems of stability in floatation due to a high ground water level, as well as foundations on bad expansive soil.
Using the principles of Valuemize™, Agami’s structural design team ensured that the clients requirements were met, avoiding a costly piling solution. Our solution catered to the fundamental attribute of water-tightness, as well as high floatation tendencies of the tank.
The structural design exemplified Agami’s vast experience in designing water retaining structures for MNCs and foundation engineering. The structure was designed as a 3D shell, with actual 3D modelling done in SAP2000. Body-weight and an enlarged base ensures that the tank does not float.
“Client was extremely satisfied with the engineering finesse and overall pro-active solutioning shown by AGAMI beyond their mandate. ”
