The paper presents some results of a joint research of three universities from Rio the Janeiro, Brazil, aiming at the observation of concrete creep and shrinkage effect on soil structure interaction. In this paper an 18 story building resting on shallow and deep foundations was submitted to a site instrumentation to monitor settlements and loads of some columns close to the ground floor during the construction phase. Particular attention is given to the effect of concrete creep and shrinkage in soil structure interaction effects. Due to the extent of the experimental results, only part of the database is presented.
