Sustainable Development of Underground Space and the Reuse of Existing Foundations

Dr Fiona Chow

This presentation describes geotechnical issues that should be considered, but are often forgotten, drawing from the work done in the European Commission’s COST C7 committee described in the book “Hidden Aspects of Urban Planning” co-authored by the presenter and published by Thomas Telford. Numerous examples of international best practice in geotechnical engineering and underground space development will be described, along with two case histories of foundation reuse in London.
