Canary Wharf Station - Crossrail - UK

As part of innovative design to enable construction of the station box, a cofferdam was created to hold back the water around the worksite. This was made up of approximately 300 interlocking Giken steel and concrete piles and various supporting equipment. The largest piles supporting the dam are 38m long. Instrumentation was an integral part of minimising the risks associated with such a deep and innovative construction project.

Ziezoun Dam - Syria

As part of the re-building program a new design with an extensive monitoring system is currently being implemented. The new dam design includes a much deeper foundation which is intended to remove the weak strata identified as part of the reason for the failure. Geosense instrumentation was used to monitor the dam integrity by monitoring key areas.
