Seismic stability of braced excavations next to tall buildings
2015/9/1Analysis of seismic stability can be complex. In many cases a simple, pseudo-static treatment can be appropriate if there is only limited participation of the adjacent structure in the excavation process under static conditions. Figure 2 shows the displacement field of Bolton et al. (2008), an extension of the various base stability mechanisms considered by Ukritchon et al. (2003).
2014/10/12Excavated rock was re-used as crushed aggregate in the concrete flooring. Excavation marks were left exposed on all the stonework, a reminder of the building process. With the exception of a separate guest suite, the Pierre functions on one main level,
The Cellar is a distinctive storage building recessed into the side of a hill with 10,000 tons of rock excavated to create a 35-FT tall natural limestone wall that serves as the rear interior wall. Weathered rock and erodible limestone necessitated excavating 15 feet further into the hillside than planned to achieve a structurally sound rock shelf.

LEED Projects: to receive the MRc2: CWM credit on your LEED project you need to plan to recycle and/or salvage Construction and Demolition (CD) waste: 50% = 1 point, 75% = 2 points, 95% = 1 EP point. To participate in the green building programs, you
to Reading Rock's specifications and local codes. Unstable or unsuitable subgrade should be excavated and replaced with compacted 100 percent crushed gravel to specifications. Over the subbase, a laying course of concrete sand is screeded, not to.
This holistic approach to LEED certification allows for synchronized documentation and the ability to certify "unusual" projects such as Grizzly Ridge. While LEED certification is not required, Doug Piekarz, vice president of planning and conservation at the Akron Zoo, explained that sustainability and conservation are the foundation of his organization's mission.
Best Management Practices (BMPs) The control of sedimentation from construction sites is accomplished through the utilization of a variety of erosion and sediment control Best Management Practices (BMPs). Essentially, any device, practice, or procedure that has demonstrated to effectively control either the quality and/or quantity of stormwater
A diaphragm wall is a concrete wall constructed by excavating a deep trench. It can be constructed as to cast-in-situ wall or as a precast wall. When there are space limitations, diaphragm walls are constructed as it does not require much space. Excavation for foundation done widely using this method today. Further, in some constructions, these
2021/10/1A range of accommodation will be available, from ground level dwellings to crevice hotel suites midway up the mountain, and a select number of excavated rooms within the rock massif itself. To provide undisrupted views across the landscape, most roads leading into the resort will be pushed to the edge of the main wadi and hidden behind landscape mounds.
