Excavation Pit Design

Each project and site requires custom made solutions for the design and construction of deep excavation pit. With respect to the complex boundary conditions (ground conditions, ground water, existing building, underground services, traffic, legal land ownership of neighboring plots etc.) as well as project requirements (architectural design, environmental impact, limits on deformations, safety, construction method etc.). gbc - geotechnical engineering provides the excavation pit design that sets out optimized, safe and cost-effective solutions for the construction comprising the following main components:
  • Pit wall system and pit wall supporting system 
  • Embankments and slope stability
  • Excavation sequencing / temporary construction stages 
  • Base slab structure 
  • Uplift tension measures 
  • Protection of existing facilities  
  • Deformation monitoring programme
