Resilience measure: Improved construction site preparation


Improved construction site preparation is focused on improving the strength and drainage capabilities of an area that is converted from a rural or nature area to an urban area. It should be done before construction of buildings is started. Main aspects of improved construction site preparation are investing in preloading of the soft subsoil with sand or solid soil, construction of groundwater drains and creation of a surface water system
(Huizinga R.P., 2015, p. 60).
