Geotechnical Risk Management – a contractors perspective
The design of geotechnical structures and foundation solutions needs to consider the balance between the required performance criteria, constructability requirements and commercial constraints. Especially the design and construction of temporary works needs to take into account effective risk management principles to ensure safe and efficient solutions.
Brian Perry Civil’s Geotechnical Engineering team are presenting three case studies to demonstrate how effective risk management principles and quality assurance can be applied for optimal project outcomes. The three presentations describe how project geotechnical risks was evaluated along with solutions to address challenging geotechnical and other boundary conditions. Case studies from the Downtown Commercial Bay basement construction, The Hamilton Bypass Project in Hamilton and Puhoi to Warkworth project will be used to show examples including considerations from both the permanent and temporary works perspectives.
