Modeling and Design Services for lift shaft and lift lobby tunnel stub using SCL / NATM:

Gall Zeidler Consultants provided design and computer modeling services for a shaft and tunnel stub to be constructed using Sprayed Concrete Lining / New Austrian Tunneling Method (SCL / NATM). These structures serve as an elevator shaft and the elevator lobby, respectively.

The shaft and tunnel stub will be constructed entirely in London Clay. The initial shaft and tunnel stub support consists of a reinforced shotcrete lining. Excavation followed the principles of SCL / NATM. A PVC membrane-based waterproofing system as well as shotcrete and cast-in-place concrete linings were installed for permanent support.
