Project description

TENDER DESIGNS IN SINGAPORE
Arthe Civil & Structure is involved in a number of tender designs in Singapore. Technical challenges for these projects are, among other things:

  • backfilling and creating embankments in areas with soft subsoils
  • “traditional” land reclamations
  • land reclamation by creating a polder

For our client we provide advice regarding sequence of work, construction of dikes, settlements risks and mitigation measures, and re-use of available soil. We also make the corresponding calculations of settlement and stability.

SINGAPORE - POLDER PULAU TEKONG
After a series of "traditional" land reclamations by backfilling with sand or other suitable materials untill an elevation well above sea level is reached, Singapore is ready to construct its first polder, near the island of Tekong. Part of the Johore Strait will be enclosed by dikes, the sea bottom inside will be levelled, and the area dewatered. The sequence of constructing the polder and the ambitious planning combined with the soft subsoil are challenging. We have used our Dutch knowledge of flood defences and settlements as input for the tender consulting services.
