Being Development commissioned SOCOTEC Netherlands for the geotechnical and environmental surveys and consultancy work.
The CPTs carried out for the new construction had a maximum depth of 40m. Since the rods had to go through very hard layers of sand, special measures were taken to prevent the sounding rods from breaking due to the weight of over 20 tonnes that would be put on them.
