The Al Quds tower construction, with 500 m height, 100 storyes and 5 basements, was a challenge at the time. Once built, it was to be the most innovative human habitat and the greatest landmark of Doha. This icon building could symbolically be linked with Al Quds trough, the analogy with the Dome of the Rock, the most important and ancient monument of the Islamic culture.
The foundation works included diaphragm wall. Toe level of diaphragm wall was upto -30 m. Excavation level was also up to -24 m. Lots of instruments as per specification of designers were supplied and installed during excavation/foundation works and behavior of diaphragm wall was closely monitored.
Encardio-rite supplied foundation instruments to Al Quds, through Ammico Contracting Company who were awarded the contract for piling and foundation work in 2009. Instrumentation included:
Encardio-rite also conducted pre-construction building condition survey of the adjacent structures, coming within the zone of influence of the construction works.
