Visit us! at the Underground Infrastructure & Deep Foundations Middle East

Visit Keller at the 4th Underground Infrastructure & Deep Foundations Middle East in Dubai to be held at Le Royal Meridien – JBR The Walk on 13-14 November 2017. We are pleased to meet you at our Keller booth and answer any questions you might have or if you need more information on our geotechnical solutions that we offer in the Middle East.

With the Dubai metro extension, construction of the Creek Harbour District and sewage system developments underway, developers, main contractors, consultants and sub-contractors are looking to put in place best piling and foundation structures and source the most efficient methodologies to create robust underground infrastructure. However, when it comes to constructing alongside existing buildings, industry experts are facing a number of challenges. After conducting in-depth research with leading geotechnical and structural professionals in the region, there are a number of identified challenges that they are facing in their projects, around areas such as foundation design, soil conditions, waterproofing, groundwater control and underground infrastructure protection.

On the 13th November, Keller’s Technical Director for Middle East, Dr. Robert Thurner is scheduled as a presenter and will discuss:

 Choosing the best ground improvement methods – Based on soil conditions and clients’ needs

– Grouting techniques that improve the foundation in existing facilities
– High loaded soil improvement techniques applied successfully for sensitive structures
– Value engineering on major ground improvement projects
