Observation Tower by Predrag Vujanovic

Need help with a project im currently working on, mainly with the foundation and a steel joint detail. The project is located in a subtropic climate (UAE)  on sandy and marshy land. Client has specified that no heavy machinery will be allowed on the site for diging or for concrete works. So what would you advise when it comes to foundations and a detail of how to connect columns with a beam that carries the walkway?

  1. Hello.

    When it comes to foundations and the conditions that you mentioned I would advise you to check out ‘helical’ or ‘screw’ pier foundations and then some ordinary beams to connect them between the columns. I can see here a possibility as this seems as a very unortodox structure. I hope that depth of escavations is not conditioned aswell?

    All the best.
