Commercial- residential building of Damon Darya, Kish island
Project Name: Commercial- residential building of Damon Darya, Kish island
Finish date: 3/11/2012
Client: Damon Darya
Figures: 900 Ischebeck micropiles, 12 cm in diameter and 15 m in length each
Construction of 160 piles, 1.2 m in diameter and 30 m in length, were replaced by Ischebeck micropiles. Because of a coral layer in ground conditions at the site in Kish island, construction of piles would cause significant costs. Using Ischebeck micropiles led to 35% reduction of total costs for client. In initial design, Ks of each micropile was assumed 35 ton/cm according to the geotechnical report but after the completion of the construction operations, compression and tension tests were carried out and Ks of each micropile measured as 200 ton/cm which shows a very good function of installed micropiles.
