KEY CHALLENGES

ECC was awarded this project after the raft foundation, part of the basement slab and the retaining walls had all been completed by another contractor with major water leakages starting through the raft foundation and basement walls. The waterproofing sub-contractor failed to solve the leakage issue. ECC solved the issue.

Serious logistic problems due to the limited access to the site and insufficient space around the plot for storage of materials.

Insufficient space was available during mobilization for the site offices and other facilities. Half of the site offices needed to be demobilized in the middle of the project to allow other contractors to work.
