Current status recording and flood protection, German embassy in Delhi, India

On behalf of the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin, a planning exercise for flood protection and sewage construction measures for the German embassy and ambassador’s residence in Delhi was undertaken. In the course of this exercise both properties were recorded in detail using tachymetric measurements. Due to incomplete planning documentation, the ground plans of the buildings had to be recorded fully from scratch. For flood protection it was necessary to map every wall duct in the cellars, in order to seal them from ground water pressure.

Results from TV examinations and smoke testing were taken as baseline information in the surveying. The incorporation of this information in a sewer database served as the basis for the planning of the flood protection measures, and for the preparation of a drainage study.
