ACES Dubai successfully completed the prestigious project of the Jumeirah Open Beach for Meeras Holding in Dubai, UAE. The scope of work included drilling more than 60 boreholes with depths ranging from 25 to 30 meters from sea level using two “ Jacked-up” pontoons to determine the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of the foundations ground in order to provide the structural engineer with sufficient information for the design of most suitable and safe foundations. The project was handled by ACES Dubai staff and drillers in the most professional manner to ensure high drilling efficiency, optimum productivity, top safe working conditions for the drillers and maximum client satisfaction.

ACES Khartoum has recently organized an extensive training course in geotechnical engineering for external trainees as part of its efforts to expand training services in the country. The training course was delivered by ACES Khartoum technical staff from the geotechnical and materials departments. The training course covered some basic subjects in geotechnical engineering such as drilling methods & techniques, soil geotechnical properties, soil laboratory tests (physical, strength, chemical), and introduction to foundation engineering. The training course was very helpful and informative to the trainees and represented a good opportunity for ACES Khartoum interact with colleagues in the geotechnical community.
