Special Feature of e.construct Service: 
e.construct’s approach was to design the raft, while resisting the uplift forces without tension piles, by connecting the retaining wall to the temporary bracing system (diaphragm wall) through capping beam. The weight of the diaphragm wall acts as a permanent counterbalance force to resist the uplift forces.
