Engineers Ireland Geotechnical Society Presentation

Dr. Sauer & Partners’ Senior Associate, Bethan Haig will present to the Geotechnical Society as part of an Engineers Ireland event.

Bethan will deliver a case study of the Bank Station Capacity Upgrade (BSCU) project, discussing the geotechnical and engineering challenges of the project from design through to completion.  Bethan’s presentation will cover our involvement in the design of the new southbound platform tunnel and associated length of running tunnel for the Northern line, connecting passageways and openings into the existing station tunnels, and three tunnelled escalators. Bethan will show how the design and construction had to address interactions with overlying structures, including a tunnel passing through under-reamed piles supporting a building that remained occupied throughout the works.
