Mukona was appointed to design lateral support systems for a proposed basement for Chapman House in Fresnayye, Cape Town

Client: Terra Found CC

Mukona carried out designs for lateral earth support systems and underpinning of existing footings of a proposed 3.5m basement for Chapman House, which was underlian by very soft to soft rock.


Key Facts: Lateral earth support system design and analysis, pile cap and capping beam designs, pile wall movement monitoring

Results from the design process recommended that anchored and cantilevered pile walls were to be installed for the proposed development. Monitoring of the pile wall and existing foundation movements was conducted during construction and post completion of construction in order to maintain a safe design.
