In complex urban environments where new excavations need to be squeezed between existing infrastructure, intricate handworks adits are often required to facilitate either temporary or permanent works.
Dr Bedi has been heavily involved in the design and sequencing of these traditionally hand mined adits for large infrastructure projects in central London, where these handworks adits have been excavated adjacent to operational railway infrastructure, often immediately adjacent to live passenger areas or directly below the tracks. Dr Bedi has also been involved in assuring their construction through various ground conditions, where ground treatment was required to stabilise the ground.
Bedi Consulting are able to provide complete design services and construction advice and support for such handworks. As well as design of the temporary works excavations, we are able to provide structural design of the permanent works, whether they are constructed using steel supports or reinforced concrete box structures.
