Info: With the Dubai metro extension, construction of the Creek Harbour District and sewage system developments underway, developers, main contractors, consultants and sub-contractors are looking to put in place best piling and foundation structures and source the most efficient methodologies to create robust underground infrastructure. However, when it comes to constructing alongside existing buildings, industry experts are facing a number of challenges. After conducting in-depth research with leading geotechnical and structural professionals in the region, we have identified a number of challenges that they are facing in their projects, around areas such as foundation design, soil conditions, waterproofing, groundwater control, and underground infrastructure protection.
