Earthworks for Peninsula Plaza Shopping mall and Office Towers at Plot no:1251-1256, Haile Selassie Road, Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.
Planned on being the largest mall in Tanzania upon completion, Peninsula plaza is set on 4.5 acres with a built up area of approximately 90,000 square metres
The earthworks comprised of topsoil excavation as well as rock excavation to a depth of 7.2 metres. Total volume of excavation as of 10th August 2016 is 86,000 cubic metres.
One of the biggest challenges was the soil quality itself and the size of the dig. Not only is this the largest double basement ever excavated in Tanzania but the base is of an extremely hard coral rock.
Due to its close proximity to residential and commercial zones, we could not use explosives for this dig and resorted to using Multiple hydraulic hammers and Excavators and Bulldozer rippers
