Unplanned urbanization and socio-economic changes cause to environmental issues due to the rapid increase in modern technology and industrialization. This situation can lead to significant environmental problems in large cities. During new constructions in limited areas or renewal of existing structures, severe damages, and even collapse issues in adjacent buildings can arise due to the fundamental excavation performed in violation of science and craft rules. The study focuses on reasons of damages occurred in adjacent structures due to foundation excavation.
