Development of neighborhoods in Beit Shemesh

Development of several neighborhoods in Beit Shemesh on complex and problematic soil

The challenge:

Development of the "glasses neighborhood" and neighborhoods D. 1-4 built by the Ministry of Construction.

The soil in Beit Shemesh is complex, problematic and contains chalky and marlstone areas. The marlstone areas are problematic due to the widespread of the sliding phenomenon in them. 

The solution:

In chalky areas, the foundations used were usually based on micro-files or regular piles.

On the other hand, the marlstone, which is a weak rock with swelling potential, requires deep foundation with piling machines as well as treatment of slope sliding.

These factors made the solutions more expensive and complicated.
