Some 3300 of a planned 3600 temporary SBMAs have been installed to support a 25m deep diaphragm wall for the Kuntsevo Shopping Centre in Moscow, Russia. Dr Devon Mothersille visited the site in late November 2012 to inspect the works and attend meetings with the specialist ground anchor contractor Kasktas Piling & Drilling Co.
