A 21-storey building with one level of basement was proposed to be built adjacent to two existing Putra LRT tunnels and over the footprint of the existing Amanah Raya building along Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.
JTK Consult (JTK) was engaged to review the impact of the proposed construction approach on the existing tunnels. As part of our assessment, we undertook geotechnical modelling to study any detrimental impact of ground movement on these two tunnels.
We also developed the overall responsibility matrix for the monitoring and required rapid response approach in the event there are structural effects to the tunnels during construction.
