Project:
In the heart of Groningen the Groninger Forum will be build. The realization of this five-layer building with underground parking in a busy, historic downtown is a geotechnical challenge.

Activities:
Wiertsema and Partners performs geomonitoring during the construction. The following measurements are carried out:

  • deformation measurements neighboring properties;
  • displacement measurements diaphragm walls;
  • vibration measurements;
  • groundwater level measurements;
  • measurements during installation diaphragm walls.

By using these measurements and their associated limit and alarm values ​​it is possible to identify the influence on the surrounding area and to anticipate on this.
