    A New Paradigm for Pre-Construction Engineering Analysis

    Recent events in both New York and San Francisco, have highlighted a much under-appreciated but enormous risk caused by most large construction projects in dense urban environments.

    The effects of major construction projects on adjoining properties are not sufficiently understood. When the unanticipated problems occur they often result in significant damages, which can equal the entire cost of the new project.

    The proper analysis of these effects involve advanced geotechnical and structural analysis, often not undertaken in large complex projects.

    We will cite several well-known situations which could have been avoided if this new level of pre-construction analysis was undertaken.
