Hotel Deep Foundation Monitoring

During the rehabilitation of a Hotel in Saudi Arabia, BDI performed monitoring of the in-situ building, as well as the adjacent two structures. Monitoring was critical because the new excavation was below the raft foundations of all surrounding structures. The system included four piezometers, 19 hydraulic settlement cells, 19 convergence meters, 19 tiltmeters, 11 manual survey points, and seven load cells distributed between three stand-alone remote dataloggers. The system was installed prior to excavation and maintained throughout the construction project.
