Geotechnical Investigation For Signature Tower

Fugro has conducted an extensive

geotechnical investigation campaign

for the iconic new addition to

Dubai’s skyline, ‘The Tower at Dubai

Creek Harbour.’

Fugro was contracted by Emaar

Properties for the geotechnical in-

vestigation. Because of the height

and design of the structure, ground

engineering is critical in the pro-

gramme schedule and foundation

design.

“We deployed resources and

expertise to meet a demanding

design programme and to

ensure the results of the site

investigation were of the highest quality,”

explained Peter Brooke, Fugro’s Business Delivery

Manager.

The scope of works included over 4,800 metres of

triple tube coring to depths of up to 200 metres and 225

insitu pressure meter tests. A full range of standard and

specialist geotechnical laboratory testing was undertaken

on the recovered core.

To complete the campaign, Fugro carried out down-

hole P and S suspension logging.

This programme represents one of the most com-

prehensive geotechnical investigations undertaken in

the region and the acquired information will be the base

for the foundation and piling designs.
