Barrette Foundation Technique Employed

The baurree foundation system con-
structed by Soletenche (Paris. France)
tor the LuckyGoldstar Building in
Seoul, Korea, has not yet been used in
he United Staes, but it is becoming in-
creaingly common in Europe and
South Amenca., t represents the sate
of the practice in deep foundation de-
sign and construction.
A primary advantage of the barrete
system is the ability to construct the
deep oundation through saurated

granulr solb bedlock without expen-
se casing and potentially damaging
deatering. Also, with a barrtte sys-
tem, the diaphragm slurry wall con-
strucion equipment is already on ste.
so additional equipment mobilization
cos are avoided.

Increase In Computer Use Continues

According to TWchftinMr publish-

Company, thee was another giant step
in the increase in computer use bet-
won 1985 and 1986.
The results o the latest survey of
computer use by designers and con-
tractors shows a large gain of about 15
