SITE ANALYSIS – geometry and characteristics of space
SITE ANALYSIS – construction- coastal land reclamation consists of two layers: highly permeablelayer consisting of crushed rock fragments underneath a less permeablelayer (sand)- land reclamation increases water level- deep foundations have a profound impact on underground water flow● building on reclaimed land demands ground improvement and constant maintenance (drainages) – Source: Preliminary assessment of the impacts of deep foundations and land reclamation on groundwater flow in a coastal area in Hong Kong, ChinaASCERTAINMENTS:● LESS CONTACT AREA WITH GROUND = LOWER COSTS FOR CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTAINING● BUILDING ON RECLAIMED LAND DEMANDS AT LEAST 20 % MORE INVESTMENT THAN BUILDING ON ORDINARY LAND
