Due to high groundwater table and ground conditions which comprised of loose sandy soil, there is a high liquefaction potential at the project site. Omran Ista suggested deep soil mixing and jet grouting methods to mitigate liquefaction potential. Also underpinning method adopted because of changing in architectural plan after construction of building foundation which led to increasing of surcharge.

In order to increase the foundation bearing capacity, jet grouting columns were installed with diameter of 70 cm and length of 5 m to underpin the building foundation after drilling in it. Construction of jet grouting columns was carried out by modern equipments and with the help of Casagrande engineers
