UCOL Block 7 Strengthening

X CLOSE

 CLIENT  McMillan & Lockwood PN Limited
 PRINCIPAL  Universal College of Learning
 TIMEFRAME  December 2011 - March 2012


With one of the larger classroom blocks identified as a potential earthquake risk, like most seismic strengthening projects one of the first obstacles was establishing a suitable foundation design to fit around the working space restrictions the existing building offered.

One of our Low-Drill units was squeezed into extremely tight areas outside the building to install 900mm diameter bored concrete piles against external walls for the K-Braces, while a small bobcat was used with one of our rotary drilling attachments to fit through the 1300mm wide access way and install the 200mm diameter micropiles, 18.0m deep.
