Rock Anchors Cape Clear
GDG was commissioned by L&M Keating Ltd to review and amend an existing rock anchor design for a submerged precast chamber.
Scope of Work:
The scope of work for this project involved developing a ground model for input into the initial anchor design. A review of the rock quality was undertaken to assess the feasibility of optimising the anchor lengths and reducing the amount of drilling. This resulted in the anchor size being reduced. GDG was also responsible for liaising with the contractors on site to deal with drilling obstructions and minor modifications to the anchor layout due to unforeseen site constraints. GDG scheduled the testing regime and reviewed the results to confirm the anchor suitability.
