This paper describes studies associated with planning for a new Metro Line in close vicinity to heritage buildings in the historic heart of Beijing requiring strict compliance with vibration criteria. To minimize uncertainties, extensive measurements were performed, including borehole tests to assess local soil properties. Furthermore, the influence of several key design factors on the final results is analyzed. The importance of long-term design and installation experience of highly efficient FST is illustrated
