The talk will provide a wide-ranging review of the type of support available for providing ground support and their limitations of use for deep excavations. This will include discussion on connection details, why these are important and where they can go wrong. The challenges associated with underpinning excavations will also be explored.

Stuart Marchand will address a comparison between permanent works and temporary works and the factors to consider in making this distinction.

The lecture will consider construction sequences and methods for deep basements leading into a discussion on the possibilities for constructing a 3-storey basement. This will include the significance of propping levels and how these can affect the works.
