In recent months leading geo-technical solutions provider, Keller's Franki Africa, has enhanced its reputation with several history-making basements in the Sandton area. One of these, the basement for the new Old Mutual building on the corner of West Street and Rivonia Road (opposite the Gautrain station) turned out to be one of Franki Africa's most challenging projects in the area. While there were several reasons for this, the three main challenges were the extensive diabase dyke on the south-western side of the site, the presence of the Gautrain tunnel, which runs directly under the site, and the integration of the adjoining Sandown Mews development.
