K.L. International Airport
The new low cost carrier terminal at Kuala Lumpur International Airport known as KLIA 2 is located approximately 1.5km away from the existing Kuala Lumpur International Airport Main Terminal. The geotechnical services provided include supervision of detailed site investigation, soil profile interpretation and determination of soil parameters for analysis. We also performed pile analysis, slope and excavation stability studies. The entire site is underlain by a thick layer of very soft to soft clay with maximum thickness of 18m. Kiso-Jiban addressed the presence of this thick soft clay layer in pile studies with consideration of the effect of negative skin friction on the piles. The stability of embankment and excavation during construction are given considerable emphasis in this weak ground condition.
