Deep Foundations in Hong Kong
Martin Pratt, Nick M. Walsh, Siva Arunachalam, Stephen Young, Peter Sunderland

This paper is an overview of deep foundation engineering in Hong Kong past, present and future. The enormity of the subject compared with the space available makes brevity inevitable. Issues of construction and design are covered and some examples of recent challenging projects are given. The content is aimed at those with an interest in foundations generally, but with limited knowledge of the Hong Kong scene. Reference is made to informative publications for further reading on specific topics.
