With extensive experience of providing cost-effective, sustainable and environmentally-friendly solutions to the most complex and demanding technical challenges, Riyadh Geotechnique & Foundations brings together expertise across a broad array of specialist disciplines, including, but not limited to, geotechnical site investigations, topographical surveys, hydro-geotechnical studies, structural engineering, and shoring work.
The company’s ability to take technical problems and turn them into real practical and commercial solutions has seen it successfully complete a wide range of important and prestigious projects. One excellent case-in-point is the King Abdulaziz Conference Centre in Riyadh, working in conjunction with long-term client Saudi Oger, for the Ministry of Finance.
King Abdulaziz Conference Centre is the main component of a major development that also takes in a Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Through targeted site investigation and risk assessments, the company delivered an integrated strategy for the scheme which, whilst simple in a structural sense, was also very complicated. The two main halls, for instance, cover huge areas with not a single column to be seen. Instead, heavy 4.75 metre-high prefabricated concrete beams were lifted into place so that work could begin on the suspended ceiling before the slab.
Riyadh Geotechnique & Foundations provided a comprehensive range of services on this development, taking in everything from soil investigation and foundations excavation work through to materials testing and cavity probing.
