Development of Kwu Tong & Fanling North

Kwu Tung North & Fanling North, Hong Kong

One solution, checks all!

A temporary reinforced soil structure was required to support a piling rig operation at a real estate development. Tensar proposed a wraparound system incorporating Tensar uniaxial geogrids as it enables rapid construction whilst simultaneously meeting project specific requirements.


  • Rapid construction using wraparound facing
  • Stable platform withstands heavy surcharge load confidently
  • Flexible solution can be constructed under limited space easily
Client's Challenges

The client requested a temporary reinforced soil structure (RSS) as a cost-effective platform that can withstand the weight of a piling rig to construct 2 pile points that are sitting on Mat Wa River. The structure was required to have a height of 4m and be constructed adjacent to a body of water whilst being built within a confined space.

Tensar Solutions

Tensar proposed a wraparound facing system that needed minimal construction space whilst providing stable foundations for the piling rig and protection against scour. This system can be constructed swiftly and efficiently, reducing project costs whilst meeting the required standards described in Geoguide 6.
