Engineering & Movements in the Ground 'Some residential projects can be as large as commercial schemes. For a multi-level deep basement with several floors, the ground movements associated with this are likely to be unacceptably high. In practice ground movements cannot be reduced to zero...and underground construction will always cause some movement in the surrounding areas.' 'ArupGeotechnics Scoping Study/2008'
