Due to ever expanding urbanisation and infrastructure development in Gujarat, the state government has made it mandatory to have 2-5 level basements in high-rise residential and commercial complexes - essentially to cater to car parking space. As per the law, the basements should be constructed with the diaphragm wall excavation methodology for quality, while maintaining strict specifications for construction and load bearing structures.
Casagrande Dwall grabs are well known for their economical excavation and for quality of wall, and for maintaining verticality well within the allowed tolerances. Casagrande’s wide range of Diaphragm wall equipment can accomplish panel widths from 400-1500mm and achieve depths up to 80mtrs, while handling varied soil strata.
Casagrande KRC grabs have state-of-the-art telescopic Kelly based on the latest technology, and has superior features. In India too, Casagrande grabs are the most preferred for underground metro stations, river front retaining walls, jetties, underpasses etc. The Casagrande models B125XP and B200XP were the first choice of builders and contractors in Gujarat, with over 250 residential and commercial complexes in Ahmedabad alone been completed in the last two years using 20 Casagrande B125XP and B200XP machines for basement construction of various projects. In Ahmedabad, the Dwall specs generally are :
- Length of panel– 5.0 mtrs
- Thickness of panel – 400-600mm
- Depth of Panel --- 15- 28.5 mtrs depending upon number of basement levels.
