Fugro has successfully completed the deep foundation testing for the Dubai Creek Tower.

The structure itself is vast and slender which will comprise a central concrete column supported by a network of steel cable stays.

Due to its significant height and design, ground engineering was critical in the programmed schedule and foundation design, a company statement said.

Fugro was appointed to provide data collection and interpretation that could be relied upon by the construction contractor leading the foundation design and engineering.

The testing and monitoring project ran from June 2016 to August this year, said the statement from Fugro.

“Fugro carried out one of the most comprehensive geotechnical investigations in the region. We then tested the in situ performance of the proposed foundations in order to optimise the final design of the core and the cable anchorage foundation design,” said Fugro service line manager Joyshwin Sumputh.

Emaar had awarded the contract for the foundation design and construction of Dubai Creek Tower to Soletanche Bachy in June last year.

Construction of the Dubai Creek Tower is expected to be completed by 2020.
