Because of the height and design of the structure, ground engineering is critical in the programme schedule and foundation design. “We deployed resources and expertise to meet a demanding design programme and to ensure the results of the site investigation were of the highest quality,” explained Peter Brooke, Fugro’s Business Delivery Manager.

The scope of works included over 4,800 metres of triple tube coring to depths of up to 200 metres and 225 in situ pressure meter tests. A full range of standard and specialist geotechnical laboratory testing was undertaken on the recovered core. To complete the campaign, Fugro carried out downhole P and S suspension logging.

Fugro has conducted an extensive geotechnical investigation campaign for this new Dubai building. This programme represents one of the most comprehensive geotechnical investigations undertaken in the region and the acquired information will be the base for the foundation and piling designs.

Conceived as a continuation and a transition through the wide public space, the building dives into the ocean and merges with it. It develops as a triangular sharp form, which concentrates the public routes to the museum, through an inviting shape that draws visitors to the entrance and distributes them to the interior.
