The NGE geotechnical and safety contracting works teams carried out retention works for the Atrium project; an 8-storey office block above a 5-level basement car park. Their proposal was a 62 cm thick, 22 m deep diaphragm wall, stabilised by two levels of props to support a height of approximately 15 metres.
