Dr Mothersille visits Bauer’s Global Gateway Development project in Abu Dhabi – October 2018

Following the successful delivery of the seminars in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Dr Mothersille visited Bauer’s Global Gateway residential development construction site in Abu Dhabi.

The project involves an excavation supported by secant pile walls which are themselves stabilized by an anchored pile cap. Importantly all the anchors on the project (166No.) are removable SBMAs with working loads of 800kN and overall lengths of 18.5m. In order to demonstrate removability of the prestressing strand, the client’s representative was invited to witness the removal process.

Three lengths of prestressing strand were successfully removed using a monojack initially and then with an excavator paying due regard to safety during the whole operation.
