New Office Building
JPG were appointed on this prestigious office development in the Al Mawaleh district and in close proximity to Seeb International Airport and fronting the Gulf of Oman.
Three levels of underground basement parking were provided along with six levels above ground.
JPG responsibilities were to provide full Civil and Structural pre construction detailed design services. JPG were also appointed to provide post contract site supervision services.
The structure is of concrete flat slab and column construction and owing to a static groundwater level which was 1.0m below existing ground level and three levels of basement, a secant pile retaining wall was chosen which was to be used to facilitate the basement construction and also be used in the permanent condition to support the building superstructure. To resist uplift pressures on the basement slab tension piles were provided.
To provide a robust waterproofing regime, a waterproof concrete was specified for the basement slab and lining walls.
To facilitate this complex design JPG utilised Revit draughting and Orion design software packages to ensure seamless production of the structural information
