Indian Society of Structural engineers arranged a lecture on Challenges in basement construction. In all metro cities, buildings are having multiple level basement for parking and services requirements. With the increasing depth of excavation, stability of adjacent structures becomes critical. In the recent past, there were mishaps during the basement construction due to failure of shoring system. Prof. G B Chaudhary eminent geo technical consultant explained safety aspects and precautions to be taken during basement construction with the help of case studies. About 200 engineers attended the function.
