Deep earth construction is basic infrastructural requirements in urban areas which serve as space for car parking and housing utilities of various kinds. Deep earth construction is a method, which builds the permanent structure members of the basement along with the excavation from the top to the bottom and joint effort of civil engineering, construction engineers, and mechanical engineers.
There are in major projects, where time factor is of primary importance it saves the overall construction time and wouldn’t be possible without the help of the plunge columns that acts as a vertebra to this technique. Deep earth construction has been used for deep excavation projects where tieback installation was not feasible and soil movements had to be minimized.
Deep earth construction begins with retaining wall installation and then load-bearing elements that will carry the future super-structure. The basement columns (typically steel beams) are constructed before any excavation takes place and rest on the load bearing elements.
