Casablanca’s Medina Buildings Monitored during Tunnel Construction

Vibrations during the construction of a new 1,890m tunnel adjacent to Casablanca’s Old Medina, the 250-year-old section of the famed Moroccan city, challenged the stability of its historically important buildings. It was essential to monitor in real time the effects on the Medina’s aging buildings and to confirm that the construction work meets all engineering standards and guidelines. Therefore ETAFAT, a geospatial information acquisition and processing company, used the Nikon XF total station to perform more than 100 daily inspections. The ETAFAT team relied on optical targets placed on building facades whose coordinates were determined by forced centering to complete... (read more)
