Following landslide mapping and subsurface investigations Abberton Embankment Dam in Essex. The dam, which is 650m long and the west cost of the Malaysian peninsular. A 50km section of the Atkins designed new coastal revetments and slope profiles. Geotechnical up to 16m high, is over 60 years old. It was built with a central core and expressway crosses an environmentally sensitive coastal peat swap measures incorporated into the solution included soil nails through the cut-off of puddle clay and outer shoulders of sand and gravel. During forest. As part of the route optimisation for this section of the highway, unstable material and counterfort drains to reduce the water table in construction, in July 1937, a major slip occurred over the central section Atkins provided technical and site management for the geotechnical the slope. The result was a stabilised slope that was accessible by the of the dam’s upstream slope. The failed area was rebuilt with very flat investigations and topographic surveys. We subsequently carried out the residents. slopes. geotechnical design of the highway, paying considerable attention to the engineering behaviour of the peat and the use of lightweight fills. Seaflow Tidal Current Turbine - Monopile Foundation Durrat Al Bahrain, Kingdom of Bahrain HSE Risk and Safety Study Following a design & build contractors’ unsuccessful attempt to install Our work for Durrat Al Bahrain was carried out as members of Atkins’ a mono-pile foundation in about 24m of water depth, Atkins was multi disciplinary project teams in the UK and Bahrain. Principal Atkins were commissioned by the UK’s Health and Safety Executive to commissioned to: geotechnical activities were: review potential safety risk implications associated with recent trends and developments in marine ground investigations techniques. We • lead an independent review of the foundation conditions and, • design and supervision of site investigation considered new approaches to geological, geophysical and geotechnical • assist with the assessment of alternative foundation options. • geotechnical Interpretative Report site characterisation, and methods of geotechnical analysis and • input into fill specifications foundation design. location of utility service pipes and cables. • advice on raft and piled foundations • settlement analysis Village Flood Barrier Banks Project, East Yorkshire • slope stability analysis Embankment Dam Construction, St Helena With an area of 20km2, the development involves he creation of 12 St Helena, a small volcanic island in the South Atlantic Ocean, suffered As part of a strategic review of flood defences following the breaching islands and the reshaping of the coastline. Our geotechnical input to the repeated water shortages. Atkins was appointed to design and of a section of river barrier, the Environment Agency commissioned design included assessment of sandfill quality and quantity, foundation supervise the construction of a new embankment dam with a 25,000m3 Atkins to undertake a series of studies to assess the risk of future conditions and outline design, dredging depth, methods of island reservoir basin to provide for the new island’s needs. failures. Subsequent work has included further investigations to refine formation and suitability of construction materials. the assessment of key lengths of flood bank and to aid design and Limitations on imported supplies (with only one ship every month) and construction of remedial works. limited plant and materials required initiative and flexibility on the part of our supervising engineer, whose responsibilities included design modifications, testing and quality control soils and concrete, training of staff, cost assessment and public relations.
