PROJECT FOCUS

The use of integrated geo-structural numerical modelling has enabled the optimisation of the piled raft foundation system for the Warsaw Spire building in Poland.  This challenging £200m project has benefited from ongoing research undertaken by A-squared and collaboration with Dutch based Geo2 BV, and has pushed the boundaries of finite element simulation in the field.

 

PROJECT FOCUS

Construction powers ahead on the initial phases of the TRV motorway scheme in Mauritius.  Emilio and Alex visit the Chinese contractor Sinohydro project management team on site.  With slopes exceeding 40m in height, the scheme presents substantial challenges from both design and construction perspectives.   

 

RESEARCH FOCUS

A-squared technician, Sean Heywood, is undertaking an extensive review of temporary works procedures and legislation in the industry as part of his final year project. "We are delighted to support Sean with his research. The significance of temporary works design is often overlooked by consultants. It is common for the greatest challenges and opportunities to arise from temporary works optimisation" says Angelo Fasano, Director of A-squared.
