From 12 to 18 July 2020 PhD. Students, Bachelors Students and employees of the Geotechnical Institute and the Department of Design of Buildings L.N. Gumilyov ENU took part in pile tests for static vertical load at the construction site of the multifunctional residential complex, being built on the left bank of the river Ishim, Nur-Sultan.
Testing team from L.N. Gumilyov ENU and KGS Ltd., conducted 3 pile tests of 3 driven ten-meter length of driven piles in problematic soil conditions of the facility under construction.
During the tests, a unique Dutch-made test equipment was used, which makes it possible to record the readings of the devices in a remote mode.

The expert commission headed by the director of the technology commercialization department, PhD. D. Kargin and Director of the Geotechnical Institute, Academician of NIA RK, Professor A. Zhussupbekov visited the experimental pile test site. Director of the technology commercialization Department, PhD. D. Kargin told to PhD. Students, Bachelors Students and employees of the Geotechnical Institute about the role of commercialization in the context of the transition to NAO L.N. Gumilyov ENU. Manager of "KGS-Astana" Ltd., PhD Yergen Ashkey (graduated of ENU the L.N. Gumilyov), as a representative of the customer, spoke about the purpose of the pile tests.

Professor A. Zhussupbekov drew attention to the fact that the results of these scientific studies will make it possible to reduce the design length of the piles. This will give a tremendous economic effect when installing working piles in a multifunctional residential complex in difficult soil conditions in the city of Nur-Sultan. He also stressed that based on these scientific data, three scientific articles of three PhD. Students are being prepared, which they will present at the 20th ICSMGE in Sydney (Australia), September 2021.
