NSCC International was approached to propose a solution (Design and Build) for the foundation strip under the metro travellator in the vicinity of Burj Khalifa Metro station to extend the foundation of the Skyviews towers. The main challenge faced were site constraints as the strip is 52 m long and 3 m wide under the metro travellator (with only 5.5 m head room) and merely a few meters from the main Burj Khalifa Metro station. The existing ground level is +2.85 DMD while the excavation level is 2.15 DMD, hence excavation is 5 m.
A drilling rig type Hütte HBR 202 E was used, manufactured by German drill rig manufacturer Hütte Bohrtechnik GmbH, electrically driven without the use of diesel.
