Vida Mall Twin Tower Project
Our team will reach out to you in some time
The Vida Mall on Plot 132-133 Downtown Development is a twin-tower comprising of 195 hotel rooms, and 614 serviced residences, along with a seven storey retail podium that links both the towers. The luxurious project is located at the edge of Downtown Dubai and connected to the Dubai Mall through a dedicated link bridge.
The building movements of structural elements in high rise designs are an important consideration for design and construction. At the proposed Vida Mall Project, it was important to determine the effects of the building movements and anticipating these movements (which occur during construction and in long term) in order to avoid any adverse affect on the performance of the structure.
This included monitoring building movements such as foundation settlement, axial shortening as well as creep and shrinkage (of concrete and composite elements). Further, the project was monitored for parameters like deflection, thermal movements (during construction), movements (due to construction loads), thermal movements, etc.
Encardio Rite’s sister concern Rite Geosystems LLC in UAE was awarded I&M sub-contract for the turnkey monitoring solutions that included:
Geotechnical instruments used for monitoring and surveying during construction activity included:
Dataloggers were used for automatic collection and transmission of data of geotechnical sensor. Robotic total station were used to automatically collect and transmit data from prism targets.
