11:40 AM Geotechnical Hazards and Risks associated with New Island Development in the Gulf Region

Geotechnical investigations are fundamental to the construction project cycle in order to efficiently understand the geological conditions to provide recommendations and design criteria for construction. Many firms in the UAE are not accurately completing geotechnical  investigations leading to unforeseen challenges, increased costs and delayed projects.

In this session, we will examine:
  • Geotechnical challenges and the engineering process of artificial islands
  • How to improve capacity in geotechnical studies, site investigation and soil conditions inspection
  • The importance of interpretation procedures in the geotechnical design
