Jeddah Port Car Park

overcoming challenging ground conditions was essential for the success of this project

ByrneLooby used our geotechnical experience to provide a ground assessment and appropriate foundation recommendations for a new build multi-story car park in close proximity to Jeddah Port.

The 5 storey car park is located in challenging ground conditions comprising of loose sands and silts in depths of up to 20m. The location also has a significant risk of liquefaction which we needed to address.

Based on our comprehensive geotechnical assessment of the site, we provided our client with a number of innovative ground improvement options which could be used in conjunction with or opposed to piling.
Our value engineered approach for the piling recommendations allowed our client to significantly reduce the lengths of the foundation piles and construction costs.
