This course gives guidance on the key considerations when planning the construction of deep basements. It covers using both embedded wall bottom-up and top-down construction in accordance with Eurocodes 2 and 7.

Course date

Thursday 22 September, 10:00 - 17:30 GMT

Learning outcomes:

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Apply performance criteria to construction techniques and structural form considering the intended use
  • Design appropriate waterproofing to achieve the desired environment
  •  Propose structural form and sequence to match the geotechnical conditions
  •  Plan construction methodology and sequence, including estimating schedule and costs
  • Assess the logistics and space requirements of different equipment considering the construction methodology and ground conditions
  • Design deep basements taking into account of all the above

Intended for:

Civil or structural engineers (from contractors to consultants) with some understanding of the design process, or those who wish to develop their design knowledge and experience, in both the technical and practical aspects of deep basement design and construction.

Entry criteria

Graduate civil and structural engineers, practising design and construction engineers, and other professionals interested in the design and construction of deep basements.
