Abstract

A deep basement in London Clay has been monitored throughout the entire duration of its excavation and construction, covering a period to date of over two and a half years. Measurements have provided a complete record of all aspects of the soil and structural behaviour. The high quality and regularity of the data, have enabled integration of diverse measurements which serve to identify important events in the history of the structure. The paper describes briefly the excavation and construction procedure, the measurements made. together with the installation methods employed. A selection of data covering a broad range of measurements is presented to illustrate some typical aspects of the interaction of the structure and the soil.
