LIST OF SERVICES TO PREVIOUS CLIENTS (e.g, NAKHEEL, EMAAR, ALDAR and Other Past Clients):
i) Expert advise/consultancy, analysis, design and supervision of geotechnical aspects of dredging, land reclamation, shoring protection, earth fill, foundation, and offshore works.
ii) Establishment of terms of reference for geotechnical investigation studies (field and lab testing) required for ensuring safe and economic design and durable construction of land reclamation works, buildings and infrastructure development on rock and soil.
iii) Evaluate and interpret results of geotechnical site and lab investigations, and make recommendations on: i) suitability of project site and most appropriate type of foundation considering structure, ground conditions and cost and time constraints, ii) requirement of ground improvement, and stabilization measures to ensure achieving targeted level of safety, and iii) rock/soil material engineering design parameters for geotechnical works.
iv) Develop quality control procedures (sampling technique, field and lab testing, verification procedure, etc) to ensure delivery of geotechnical material (e.g. rock armour quarry run, filter material, dredged and land fill material, etc) in full compliance with targeted specifications and standards.
v) Establish design criteria and conduct analysis and design of geotechnical works dealing with soil and rock material (e.g. shallow and deep (piling) foundations, ground improvement works, diaphragm walls, embankments, shoring protection works, earth and retaining structures, underground excavation support works, tunnels, ground water control system, etc).
vi) Develop earthquake design parameters and response spectrum for design of buildings and infrastructure considering regional tectonics and local geology and soil/rock conditions.
vii) Develop a workable investigation plan for selecting best dredging material and dredging sites for use in land reclamation for upcoming Client projects to ensure full compliance with targeted specifications and avoid problems of liquefaction, excessive fines content, weak materials, piping erosion, creep settlement, and other durability related problems. Evaluation of properties of dredged material based on such studies and make recommendations.
viii) Recommend best practices for land reclamation works and most effective methods of ground improvement works for each type of dredging material ensuring compliance with safety and design requirements (settlement, bearing capacity and resistance to liquefaction), cost requirements and optimum time of execution.
ix) Recommend specifications, codes of practice and quality control methodologies for land reclamation geotechnical works.
x) Review, make recommendations and certification of method statements for geotechnical engineering works submitted by the contractors (e.g. ground improvement, piling, shoring, etc).
xi) Recommend geotechnical practices and materials that meets the requirements of safety, cost effectiveness and timely execution.
xii) Participate in technical meetings representing Client.
xiii) Third party review of geotechnical studies, design, specifications and make recommendations.
xiv) Provide all needed geotechnical advise to Client.
xv) Conduct individual or joint routine site visits representing Client for inspection and recommendation.
xvi) Recommend and supervise monitoring program of geotechnical works (e.g. settlement, pore pressure, erosion etc)
xvii) Conduct value engineering analysis of geotechnical works
