upward hydrostatic pressure is balanced out and then exceeded by mass of building. flooded basement means major issues for all rebar

They are not at the water edge. Their sites needed dewatering too during the construction process, but beeing far from the Marina canal, there was never a danger of site flooding there.

Bugger!
Oh well, the building right next to it is proof that they can recover just fine.

They flooded it themselves to avoid the collapse of the wall, which would have been a major incident, as in the case of the tower nextdoor.

Here's whats happened when you trying saving costs too much Really I can't grasp the fact that they knew what happened just the site next to them and they didn't install those supports first.

Here's whats happen when you trying to speak about things you don't know/understand ... what 'supports', and what those 'supports' (whatever they are you are referring them as) have to do with anything?

1. They deliberately flooded site so the walls wouldn't collapse.
2. They will secure the site so the walls wouldn't collapse without water in.
3. They will dry the site.


Now please, oh wise sir, explain why couldn't they do just a second step during digging?

At least they haven't let this wall collapse, but I'm sure they could save a lot of money if they have made better protection during digging.
