Our geogrids were chosen for the Arezzo Place condominium development in Pasig, Metro Manila
PHINMA Properties is a leading developer of affordable housing in Metro Manila. Adding to a growing list of developments is The Arezzo Place located in Pasig City. The high-rise condominium development features the convenience of living close by commercial and retail establishments, schools and recreational facilities.
Adam Abinales Engineering and Consultancy acting as the Developer’s consultant, required a suitable geotextile reinforcement to sit atop a 1.5m-thick soil-cement base. This in turn would support a 400mm-thick foundation mat. Based on the consultant’s specifications and our recommendations, MacGrid® WG15 was chosen as suitable reinforcement.
To achieve the required tensile strength two layers of the grid were installed. Consideration was given to the overlap of the fabric and the placement of the second layer was oriented at right angles to the first.
Careful planning and preparation allowed for both grid layers to be installed within 2 days. The foundation for the second of two buildings is well on its way to completion and a similar configuration of grids will be installed in the near future. Altogether, over 4,000sqm of grid will be installed on this project.
The consultants were happy with our support and site supervision for this project.
