Moses Mabhida Stadium

A hardstand platform to support an 800-ton crane was required for the construction of the stadium arch. The original design called for the importing of a selected G5 aggregate to prepare a platform to accommodate the movement and operation of the crane, a procedure estimated to take 8 weeks with frequent rain-induced delays. Global Civil Solutions proposed an elegant and innovative alternative; stabilizing a stockpile of in situ Umgeni sand, earmarked for blending in the bulk earthworks, with ANSS to a depth of 30cm instead.
