Successful Project near Jebel Ali Area

We are excited to share details about a remarkable project our teams recently completed in the south of Dubai, close to the area of Jebel Ali.

 

The primary objective of this project was to establish an efficient and reliable sewerage system, connecting the developed communities of the Jebel Ali area to the networks of the Dubai municipality.

 

One of the notable challenges was that one of the sewer lines was crossing above the existing metro line. To ensure seamless execution, Sixense was entrusted with a comprehensive instrumentation and monitoring campaign for the metro tunnel. Our teams diligently measured settlements, tracked 3D movements, and monitored vibrations, guaranteeing total safety along the project.

 

Sixense also conducted pre- and post-construction dilapidation surveys, including a detailed visual inspection and a thorough condition assessment of the metro tunnel’s interior. Our objective was to document and report any existing cracks and damages, allowing us to maintain a complete understanding of its condition at all times.

 

To accomplish these tasks with precision, we employed cutting-edge tools and technologies. The CYCLOP system, a powerful combination of Total Station and Optical Targets, played a crucial role in our surveying efforts. Additionally, we also used movement gauges and vibration units to capture accurate data and monitor the project with precision.

 

The success of this project is due to our team’s unique dedication and expertise. Moving forward, we remain committed and excited to further our contribution to the growth and development of Dubai’s infrastructure. Stay tuned for more exciting updates on our ongoing projects!

Structural Condition Assessment

At Sixense Group, we understand that condition assessment is a crucial component of any project and an essential aspect of any maintenance plan for your buildings and surroundings. By conducting regular assessments, we help you gain a deeper understanding of your assets and make precise adjustments to your maintenance plans when necessary. This approach ensures the longevity of your buildings and helps preserve the architectural heritage of the UAE.

Our pre-condition survey allows us to evaluate the area where a new structure will be constructed, ensuring that no defects will cause issues later on in the project. We also assess the condition of the buildings around the construction site to clearly understand their condition and evaluate the potential impact of the construction on them.

Regular structural condition assessments are also necessary for existing structures, allowing for informed decisions about whether to adjust maintenance plans at an early stage, repair, or replace specific structures rather than demolish them and start anew.

Our solutions are conceived to help asset supervisors manage their buildings sustainably by identifying defects and finding solutions.

Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you keep your assets in top condition.

Ramadan Kareem!

With the holy month of Ramadan upon us, the Sixense team would like to extend sincere wishes for a Ramadan Kareem to our employees, our clients, and our partners. May this month bring peace and harmony to all of us!

Assessing with Crossbow Method

Our tool, crossbow, is often used to conduct asset maintenance campaigns and is one of our main tool for studying the robustness of prestressed structures.

Actual tension in post tension cable is an important factor to have an indication about its remaining life.
At Sixense, in order to obtain this tension, we perform what is called the ‘Crossbow test’. It will allow us to compare the actual tension with the designed tension of the cable. In case of potential defects present in the strands, such as rust signs in the wires for instance, obtaining the actual tension shall allow to determine whether such defects are affecting the functionality or integrity of the cable.
While a window needs to be opened to reach the strands, one of the considerable advantages of this test is that it keeps the integrity of the post tension cable’s strands and wires intact. None of the wires of the strands shall be damaged during this test.
Sixense Middle East acquired its own Crossbow over a year ago and our client’s projects greatly benefited from it, as references of projects in which this method was applied includes:
● Four bridges of Sheikh Isa Bin Salman Highway in Bahrain, 2021
● The post-tension cables on girders in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, 2021
● The pedestrian bridge on the third ring road in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, 2021
● The Alba bridge in Bahrain, 2022

Developed by Sixense Group, this tool offers unique opportunities and brings exclusive data to our clients. If you would like to learn more about it, do not hesitate to contact us.

Best Wishes for the New Year

As we enter the new year, we would like to take a moment to reflect on all of our achievements in 2022. On your side, it has been a year of growth and success, particularly in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, where we have firmly established ourselves.

We are very grateful to our dedicated team members and partners, who have greatly contributed to our success and allowed us to achieve our goals.

Doha Red Line, a Metro Network from Scratch

On the 19th of November, the 2022 FIFA World Cup began in Qatar. For 28 days, the best football teams will compete for a coveted trophy.

It is the occasion for the Sixense team to look back on one of their key projects in Doha as the city reinforces its transport system, develops its metro network, and improves mobility for all.

Sixense was selected to provide instrumentation and monitoring services on the Red Line North, covering more than 40 kilometers through the city. We dispatched ten survey teams and 15 engineers to Doha, who immersed themselves entirely in the project and worked intensively for four years, performing up to:
– 6,000 leveling points (settlement markers and precise leveling points)
– 2,500 optical prisms
– more than 20 geodetic monitoring (Cyclops Solution)
This large-scale project also required the use of 300 geotechnical instruments and the deployment of more than 1,000 structural sensors on sensitive structures during the drilling and construction.

We are glad that our expertise participated in constructing a vital transportation network for the city while minimizing all risks, as we did in similar projects in Dubai and Riyad.

Champions Meeting in Abu Dhabi

On the 20th of November, the Yas Marina Circuit will host the Formula 1 Etihad Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2022!

With a seating capacity of 60,000 people, the circuit is the second Formula 1 track in the Middle East and one of the most active sports venues in the region.

A few years after its opening, Sixense was selected to support the construction of pedestrian tunnels under the race track. As dewatering activities were required, our teams continuously monitored the settlements’ movements using our Centaur solution. This solution measures the ground settlement without requiring installing anything on the ground.

We are excited to follow the season’s final race on the 20th of November.

Kifaf Development

The Kifaf Development is another exciting landmark project located in the emerging Zabeel district in Dubai. It will include two iconic tall twin towers connected by a bridge in the shape of the number “1”.

We were happy to work on this ambitious project in the middle of Zabeel, one of the busiest areas of Dubai. Our teams got involved during the enabling works, then installed Sixense’s classic monitoring techniques, focusing primarily on shoring walls.

Our real-added value on this project was a live automatic monitoring system for shoring walls and the close-by DEWA power station, especially during excavation works. Our solution also included an alarm system and live access to the data through our software Geoscope.

Throughout the different stages of the construction, our teams provided complete and regular engineering consulting assistance to the contractor. We are excited to see the opening of the Kifaf Development as it becomes one of the driving projects to further develop this area of the city.

Structural Durability Assessment

The Gulf region is subject to extreme environmental conditions. High ambient temperatures, salt-contaminated dust, seawater, and other factors significantly impact the lifespan of local infrastructures.

At Sixense, our mission is to accompany our clients throughout the entire life cycle of their buildings, even in the most extreme conditions, which means assessing and managing the durability of structures.

While repairing a bridge involves closing and diverting traffic, impacting the local economy, and facing high reparation costs, understanding and controlling the durability of buildings allows us to improve it and reduce repair costs directly.

Our durability assessment includes a comprehensive investigation of the structure’s condition based on the:
general visual disorders,
site investigations coupled with destructive/non-destructive testing,
laboratory tests.
The results are then analyzed to diagnose the expected remaining service life of the structure and advise on any maintenance to enhance it.

Conducting Post-Fire Integrity Assessments

Sixense’s expertise covers the analysis of all types of structures, and our teams are used to assess the condition of the largest infrastructures but also old and new buildings. Sixense is, in fact, regularly solicited for its expertise in fire investigation.

Fires are a real challenge for Dubai’s resident[SA1] s. According to the Ministry of Interior, 2 090 fire incidents happened in homes and facilities in 2021, of which 66.2% were residential. More than 50% of these fires supposedly occurred in reinforced concrete structures.

After these incidents, Sixense is often involved in many post-fire investigations and recommendations for repair solutions. The exposition of materials to very high temperatures can alter their properties, and it is essential to create a damage mapping and conduct tests and surveys on the affected areas. This way, we can assess the structure’s state and safety and the extent to which it should be repaired.

The Importance of Ensuring a High-Quality Fundamental Study

Riggat Al Buteen is located along Dubai creek in the East part of the city. As one of Dubai’s oldest districts, the area contains historical residential developments displaying traditional and modern architectural styles and the popular Deira shopping center.

Sixense was contracted by Dutch Foundation to support the construction of a residential building with 16 floors and two basements in the heart of this sensitive location. As for any excavation in such a dense urban situation, instrumentation and monitoring were mandatory.

This type of service is very classic in the construction industry. Using sensors, and our automatic total station, Cyclop, our teams demonstrated Sixense’s ability to support and advise our clients in highly technological and complex projects, but also more basic ones. High-quality fundamental analyses allow you to move forward and make the most challenging things possible.

Expanding our Networks in Egypt

Jean-Christophe Monneret, the General Manager at Sixense Middle East, and his team had a busy summer in Cairo.

Recently, Egypt has embarked on major infrastructure projects, expected to shape a new future for the country. Train lines, roads, bridges, housing units, and even a New Administrated Capital are now the government’s priority to boost the economy and solve traffic congestion in Cairo. As the country continues to work on these exciting projects, we look forward to supporting change with Sixense’s expertise.

During our regular trips to Cairo, we are always glad to connect with more local authorities, consultants, contractors, and independent decision-makers hoping to build sustainable long-term relationships and partnerships. If you’d like to meet face-to-face, feel free to contact us.

Discover our Mine & Quarry’s expertise: Volume excavation

Volume calculations are essential in mining and quarrying. It helps calibrate equipment and teams, produce accurate reports and undergo regulatory checks. The measure is usually done by conducting on-site surveys using leveling machines or total stations. But drones are the most efficient solution available.

Those who introduce drones into their #mining and #quarrying operations quickly realize the significant added value they bring to the industry and how they contribute to the overall efficiency of any site.
– Timewise: Drones will need ten minutes to complete a measurement mission, compared to five days for land-based methods.
– Accuracy-wise: Drones are five times more precise than other methods, providing accurate and comprehensive data detailing the site conditions.
– Cost-wise: The use of drones represents a marginal cost difference.

This powerful solution is a game-changer for mining and quarrying but also other delicate operations such as:
– Structure inspection: to avoid scaffolding
– Precondition survey: to gain time and efficiency
– Quay wall, wave breaker, and seashore monitoring: to refrain from using boats and heavy equipment

Hello Egypt!

We had a busy week in Cairo, meeting local authorities, consultants, contractors and independent decision-makers involved on the many exciting projects that are re-shaping the country. We will be coming back and look forward to building sustainable long-term partnerships in Egypt.

Discover our Mine & Quarry’s expertise: Atlas InSAR

At every stage of your project, monitoring ground deformation and structure stability is essential to maintain the quality and safety of your operations. Therefore, we would like to introduce InSAR, our satellite monitoring solution.

Topographic surveys are usually done manually or by using a total station. However, none of these alternatives matches the efficiency, millimetric precision, and convenience of InSAR.

– Traditional measurement methods usually monitor the displacements of precise points in an area, whereas InSAR monitors the entire surface, using millions of measurement points in a reduced time lapse. While very high-resolution results, our solution’s deployment only takes two days compared to other methods that require seven days.
– Through satellite images, InSAR captures the details of a whole area simultaneously, with unique accuracy. You can also compare current pictures to previous ones (up to 30 years ago) and better understand the area’s ground motions.
– As a remote sensing technology, InSAR doesn’t require any onsite intervention to provide results. This service allows quicker, cost-efficient, and reliable risk management of your projects.

Next time you think about large-scale monitoring (railways, pipelines…), look at the stars and think InSAR. It’s a no-brainer.

Oil and Gas Networking Event in Abu Dhabi

Thanks to Sigma and Mazrui International for inviting us to an amazing Networking event in Abu Dhabi and getting the opportunity to meet interesting oil and gas players within the group.

Discover our Mine and Quarry’s expertise: 4D Skin

As part of our Mine & Quarry serie, we would like to introduce our contactless radar technology, 4DSkin. Developed through 20 years of experimentations, it is a simple and optimal solution for large-scale, high-frequency, high-accuracy monitoring.

4D Skin offers remote millimetric monitoring of rock instabilities over large areas and structures such as quarries, dams, hills, and cliffs.

Because accuracy doesn’t have to equal complexity, the set-up only takes a few hours. It will give you an accurate measurement (typically 0.2 mm) of large areas (up to 4 kilometers) in any weather. It can even assess the risk of landslides without directly accessing the location.

The unique features of 4DSkin were chosen to monitor a dangerous cliff in the French Alps throughout a construction project. The steep section spread over almost 8000 square meters, and high precision measurements were necessary to detect any unstable rock over 2 to 3 months. Every two minutes, 4D Skin scanned the entire area, triggering an alarm in case of movement speed greater than 3mm/hour on surfaces of 10m2.

Drone Solutions

Our solutions implying drones can make you save significant time and effort when managing your assets.

#Drones have numerous applications, from assets and #risk management to construction and consulting.

At Sixense, we have a long-standing experience using these technologies to inspect structures, gather data, and present you with a diagnosis and recommendations.

Discover our range of solutions:
– Inspection: Drones enable us to access remote areas to complete an accurate assessment and operate more quickly afterward if needed. For example, our drones can help identify leaks using thermal cameras or structural disorders using an orthophoto.
– Digitization: Digitizing your assets is an essential step in every project. With the #mapping function of our drones, we can recreate a 3D high-quality digitalized image of your #infrastructure in a short amount of time. For example, the #scanning of a quarry is enough to assess the excavation volume.

With drones, our teams can operate quickly, gather accurate #data, and formulate the ideal solutions for your particular situation.

Partner on complex projects

Deira initiates its transition into a new chapter with its waterfront development.

The proximity of the construction zone with the green line metro, the Al Shindagha tunnel, the seaside, and the necessity of using shoring walls for the #excavation works, makes it a complex project with critical challenges.

Flexible expertise and an extensive range of solutions allowed Sixense to become a vital problem solver partner for this project, carrying on fundamental operations.
– Monitoring of the metro rail movements during the construction using our “Cyclops” system to gather and analyze real-time data.
– Continuous assessment of vibrations, cracks, tilting, and strains using vibration units, crack-meters, #tiltmeters and strain gauges.
– Involvement in the shoring process using sophisticated real-time daily monitoring of the retaining walls.

By working at night, our teams could deploy the necessary solutions with a minimum impact on the numerous users of these infrastructures.

Ensuring safety through the preventive maintenance of rails

As the region takes action to develop freight and passenger rail transports and integrated transportation services through massive investment, the monitoring of rails has more than ever become a significant safety matter.

Last month, we had the pleasure of attending the Roads & Traffic Expo for innovation, technology, and infrastructure hosted by Etihad Rail in Abu Dhabi. This was the occasion to demonstrate Sixense’s skill set when it comes to the monitoring and preventive maintenance of rails.

“Rail Serenity” is a solution package focused on rails monitoring. It has been developed by our teams using two of our existing and proven technologies:
·        Cyclops, a prism measurement system
·        Tiltmeter sensors, monitoring the movement on the rails’ foundations
This combination uses measurement redundancy and allows for continuous measurement regardless of the weather conditions and trains’ location on the tracks.

“Rail Serenity” is not only a new product, it is built on years of experimentation, customers feedbacks, and crossed expertise. It ensures safe, and trouble-free operations on rails through constant monitoring and reliable filtering of possible false alarms.

Working on our Global Expertise

In June, the commercial teams of all business units, and our solutions experts, will be gathering to spend a few days together in France. This seminar aims to bring every actor behind Sixense, closer to each other and increase our entire expertise as a global company.

Internal communication and teamwork between our offices worldwide is the key to our skillset. As we network, reconnect, catch up, and develop our relationships, we also expand our knowledge of Sixense’s solutions and our capacity to meet our clients’ needs.

These few days in the French countryside will be dedicated to learning more about what’s happening within our company, what has previously been done elsewhere, and how each of us can benefit from others’ experiences.

At Sixense, we believe that the key to successfully applying our solutions is the human factor. This is why the sharing of unique know-how, the maintenance of relationships, and the continuous improvement of our teams are a top priority.

Sixense Middle East Performs a Site Bridge Inspection & Evaluation in Bahrain

Sixense Middle East was contracted to perform a comprehensive site inspection and evaluation of the post-tension (PT) cables of 4 crucial prestressed bridges in Bahrain.

Sixense Middle East, with its expanding presence in the GCC region, completes work on Jasra Grade Interchange Reconfiguration, a project for the Ministry of Works in Bahrain.

The role Sixense played was to undertake a comprehensive site inspection and evaluation of the post-tension (PT) cables of four crucial prestressed bridges, the Janabiyah, Sehla, Tubli and Umm Al Hassam bridges. The bridges are all strategically located along the Sheikh Isa Bin Salman Highway, which leads from the kingdom’s capital, Manama, to Dammam through the King Fahd Causeway.

Sixense’s role was to provide data obtained from the site inspection, using high-end non-destructive tools, to assist the client in completing the structural analysis and assessment of the bridges. Sixense provided timely, cost-saving, information for preventive maintenance to ensure bridge integrity for the sake of public safety.

Instrumentation & Monitoring Services for the Ciel Tower

Dubai is home of some of the most incredible infrastructure and is recognized worldwide for its impressive constructions. Sixense expertise was required for instrumentation and monitoring services at the Ciel Tower project, the highest hotel in the world, currently under construction.

 

A new iconic tower in the heart of Dubai Marina

 

Since 2016, an impressive project has risen in Dubai Marina, building the highest hotel in the world. This high-end hotel will include a health club, a luxury spa, a restaurant, 1042 luxury suites, rooftop infinity pools along with other facilities. The Ciel Tower is a new supertall skyscraper of over 80 floors and 365m high. Located directly across the world-famous Cayan Tower (76-floors) on the north side of the marina, the Ciel Tower will become a local memorable landmark with an estimated handover date in 2023.

 

A complex situation on site

 

The close proximity with surrounding structures and the congested urban area, including one of the main RTA Marina bridges, brought several challenges to the project. It was indispensable to set an adapted instrumentation and monitoring system during the construction phases.

Sixense provides during the construction early warnings of any excessive and undue movements of adjoining premises and structures and ensures project safety with its 24/7 monitoring system and Geoscope 7 Software, sending information about movements exceeding the expected levels to the required parties. During the excavation phase, settlement, deflection and deformation data were provided in order to verify the initial designs of the permanent structure but also the temporary works supporting the excavation. Eventually, Sixense also monitored ground movements.

Periodic monitoring data reports have been provided to the contractors, consultants and RTA throughout the project.

Zetas, contracted for Enabling Works, entrusted Sixense with the instrumentation and monitoring of the ground and the structures in and around the site. Dutch Foundation, later contracted for foundation changes, recognized Sixense’s track record of delivering success for the project.

Reflectorless monitoring for Dubai’s Jebel Ali Labour City & Industrial Development

Sixense’s expertise has been requested on one of Dubai’s community development projects aiming to raise the living standards and services for labour workers with affordable housing and an innovative modern project.

 

Sixense’s contribution to a large-scale project benefiting to Dubai’s worker community

Reflectorless monitoring Dubai

Located in Dubai’s oldest and most important industrial districts, Jebel Ali Industrial development will provide quality and affordable housing to Dubai’s largest blue-collar workforce.

In the development process and in order to welcome large amounts of residents, a new sewage system had to be put in place under one of the busiest roads, Al Asayel Street. The contractor DX Contracting, hired for this project by MERAAS, opted for a Non-Destructive-Road-Crossing (NDRC) technique using a Micro-Tunnel Boring Machine. Although the machine’s drive diameter is small and used on shallow soils, there is always an existing risk of settlement that must be mitigated.

 

Sixense implements its innovative reflectorless monitoring technique

Sixense’s client requested the monitoring of the road to observe any vertical movements and mitigate the risk of settlements of this active and busy road under which the new system was being installed.

Usually, most technique consists in installing devices such as optical targets or ground settlement markers on the pavement, an invasive method interrupting traffic and needing a large site organization. Sixense was called to support the monitoring process with an innovative solution.

Sixense’s intervention brought to the project its solution consisting in the installation of a total station, an electronic optical surveying instrument on top of a nearby building, allowing a view of the whole area. From there, the influence area of the Micro-Tunnel Boring Machine could be seen with the reflectorless monitoring system to monitor the road settlements.

This innovative technique was the best solution to monitor the road safely, cost effectively whilst obtaining a density of “instrumentation” of one point every 2m² and allowing to monitor about 200 points. No installations were needed on the road and no traffic needed to be interrupted.

Sixense is aiming to put an end to conventional manual levelling techniques such as classic leveling that require specific traffic management ahead of each reading campaign and questioning safety around traffic environments.

Sixense is proud be involved in this project. Workers will now benefit as well from the area’s excellent connections to Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the northern emirates, Dubaï’s Investment park as well as the proximity to the Expo 2020 site.
