How to Excavate in New York City
A technical presentation on excavation support and underpinning systems practiced in New York City.
Most construction projects require excavations for new foundations, basements, or underground spaces. Excavations in New York City are often performed in close proximity of the existing buildings, subway lines and utilities. Unfortunately, there have been many cases where improperly designed or constructed excavation support systems have led to property damage, claims, or litigation. This presentation provides a practical understanding of various types of excavation support systems and advantages and disadvantages of each system. Several case studies from New York City projects are included. This presentation is designed to assist construction professionals, and geotechnical, environmental and structural engineers working in New York City.
Necdet Tek is a practicing professional geotechnical engineer registered in New York and Connecticut. His practice includes various aspects of geotechnical and foundation engineering. Mr. Tek is a member of several professional organizations including American Society of Civil Engineers, Fritz Engineering and Research Society, and Structural Engineers Association of New York. He is also currently the Secretary General of the Turkish- American Civil and Environmental Engineers. Mr. Tek received his Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering in 2001 from Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkiye. He then moved to USA on a scholarship from Lehigh University where he graduated in 2003 with a Master of Science degree in civil/ geotechnical engineering. In 2003, he joined the ranks of URS Corporation, a multi-national consulting engineering firm, where he has been working since then. He has performed subsurface investigations, and prepared geotechnical evaluation reports, excavation support and underpinning designs, and pre-construction condition surveys for several New York City building projects. In addition, he served as a project manager and geotechnical engineer in subsurface investigations, design and testing of deep foundations, vibration monitoring, seismic retrofit of bridges, and rehabilitation of dams for several public clients including New York City Department of Design and Construction (NYCDDC), New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), and New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP).
