The eastern side of this new 18-level apartment building with seven basement levels fronted a section of Syd Einfeld Drive. This required an impact assessment in accordance with Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) requirements.
JK Geotechnics completed a two-dimensional finite element (FE) analysis to demonstrate that predicted deflections were within RMS acceptable limits. We also developed a monitoring program which included the installation and regular monitoring of inclinometers to record deflections and verify our analysis results. The project was successfully completed and opened in April 2017.
