Damac Heights

Located in the Dubai Marina, this 85-floor (420-meter tall) skyscraper will be the tallest tower in its vicinity. Langan's services included a geotechnical review of the enabling work for the development related to dewatering issues at the project site and movement of the diaphragm wall of the adjacent Diamond Tower. Based on our review of the various documents and conversations with our client, Langan concluded that the deflection of the Diamond Tower diaphragm wall was the direct result of an inadequate shoring design and lack of proper monitoring during excavation.
