A large role of Hera Engineering’s appointment on this project was to provide construction engineering services. One of the main challenge was the installation of the tower crane.
Existing underground services dictated that the only possible tower crane location was located directly on top of the main hospital sewer line. The design constraints were therefore extremely strict to ensure the crane piled-foundations did not impede on or the sewer line. In particular, a precise pile cap settlement assessment was necessary to avoid any possibility of surcharging the sewer.
Throughout the duration of the project we have provided constant construction engineering services as required and a detailed peer review of the structural system.
