Thai Bauer Commissioned for Large-Scale District Project One Bangkok

As the political, economic and cultural centre of Thailand, the bustling metropolis is set to welcome “One Bangkok”, a new fully integrated district located opposite Lumphini Park in the heart of the city.
The 16.7 hectares development “citywithin- a-city” will comprise five grade A office towers, five luxury hotels, three residential complexes, multiple retail zones, with space for arts and culture. With a total gross floor area of 1.83 million m², One Bangkok is the largest private sector property development initiative ever undertaken in Thailand, and will set new benchmarks in design, quality and sustainability. Featuring unsurpassed accessibility and smart city innovation, the people-centric development also provides 8 hectares of public space including a 10,000 m² landscaped civic plaza, and will form a new urban centre for the city of more than 10 million inhabitants when completed in 2025.
In total around 700 bored piles with diameters of 1,500 and 1,800 mm down to a depth of 80 m are to be installed, along with a diaphragm wall with a total length of 466 m and a depth of 35 m. For this work, BAUER BG 45, BG 40, BG 28 and GB 60 grabs are being used. Besides the permanent foundation works, Thai Bauer was also commissioned with the preliminary pile load tests. These tests served to inspect the planned foundation for its loadbearing capacity and enabled the optimization of the design by the client.
