Bauer Indonesia has reported that foundation work for a new 266m high skyscraper in Jakarta is on track to be completed early in the New Year.
The 59 storey Mori Building has a four level basement that is being formed by a 44m deep diaphragm wall currently being constructed by Bauer.
The company is also constructing 462 piles that are 69m deep and 1.2m in diameter to support the high rise development.
Main contracting joint venture Shimizu Corporation and Bangun Cipta Kontraktor will use top down techniques to construct the basement once Bauer has completed the ground engineering work in January next year.
According to Bauer project manager Anang Hidayat, the work, which started in May this year, is on schedule despite the challenging logistics of the city centre location and small footprint for the foundations. “The project calls for specific requirements for logistics as the time frames in which the delivery of concrete or removal of the excavated soil are severely limited,” he said.
“Despite this, the foundation work, which is being carried out in double shifts, is coming along very well.”
The overall building is expected to be completed in 2021.
